Hi Running Buddies!

How is your running going? The Hubbo and I took about 3 weeks off from training to give our legs some time to recover from our half marathon spree in April. But now It's time to start pre-training for marathon training which starts in about 4 weeks. Eek! 
Recently, The Hubbo, some of my co-workers/friends, and I ran a fun local 5k here in Tulsa.  The Fat Guy's Burgers and Baseball 5k!

But before we get to my typical recap of the race, you may have already noticed something. My blog may look a little different to you. It does. You're not seeing things. I changed the layout and I'm still making changes. I'll be sure to post a blog about how it all went down when it's all done. 

So let's get to the race!

The Crew

A big group of friends and co-workers and I met up before the race in downtown Tulsa. Luckily, this was a small race so parking and finding each other wasn't hard at all. We also were fortunate enough that even though it was warm and humid, we had a nice cloud cover that day and the sun wasn't beating down on us. THANK GOD! I can't run in the heat y'all! #GingersDontLikeTheSun 

This race had two options. The 5k and the Fat Guy's Challenge! Fat Guys is a local burger joint located in downtown Tulsa right by the baseball field. 

The Fat Guy's Challenge consisted of running to a burger station and consuming an entire Fat Guy's Burger before being able to run the 5k. At the end of the 5k, participants also had to chug a vanilla milk shake just about .25 of a mile away from the finish line. I ran the 5k because I'm a total weeny when it comes to running and consuming large amounts of food/beer at the same time. The Hubbo on the other hand, ran the Fat Guy's Challenge and said it was ROUGH! 

The Course

The 5k started right by OneOK Field which is were the Tulsa Driller's (minor league baseball team) play. Hence the Baseball portion of this race. We ran around downtown Tulsa before heading back to the baseball field and running around the outfield and then across home plate to finish! They even had a camera set up so you could watch people cross the finish line on the jumbo tron! 

I was lucky enough to get this picture from Angela (in blue). Her family members came down to the race and snapped a few photos and I was just close enough to be included in some of them. 
The course wasn't very hilly but did have a couple small inclines so I wouldn't say this is the flattest 5k I've ever ran, but it wasn't hilly either. The best part about the course was running down the ramp to get into the baseball field before we crossed the finish line at home plate!

The Swag

The cost for the 5k was $35 and the cost of the Fat Guy's Burger Challenge was $40, I think. 
For registering for the 5k we got:
  • 1 Ticket to a Driller's Baseball Game
  • Post-Race Fat Guy's Burger 
  • Post-Race Beer x2
  • A Cotton T-Shirt
  • Cute Bib

The ticket to the baseball game was good for any regular season home game for the Tulsa Drillers. It just so happened to work out that the same day as the race, they had an evening game at home and Fireworks! So not only did we get to see the Drillers win, we got a nice celebratory fireworks show at the end! Bonus!

My Stats

PictureSun in your face = Goofy Selfie!
This wasn't my best 5k and also wasn't my worst 5k. It was warm and y'all know, I'm not a hot weather runner! Also before this race The Hubbo and I enjoyed a 3 week hiatus from running to recover from our full month of Half Marathons in April. That being said, I'm still really pleased with my results!

Here are my stats:
Time: 30:22
Division Place: 10th out of 47
Female Overall Place: 67th out of 280

Total Number of Finishers: 531
