I got that itch last week; it had been over a month since I’ve toed the starting line of a race, felt the rush of chasing someone in front of me, and the satisfaction of seeing and crossing the Finish Line. I needed a race!
Google so kindly led me to “Drop Your Drawers 5K”. How can you resist that?
Proceeds and donations went to benefit homeless children in Denver, hosted by the Underwearness organization. Yes, I’m in!
But, my drawers are staying ON.
I didn’t exactly prepare the legs for speed. The bike ride in the morning, preceded by trail running the night before, were kindly lending lactic acid to my muscles.
Ah, well, run for the kiddos! And try to at least avoid a PW…
The effort exuded to try and lessen that gap was about all I had left by mile 3 – whew.
Nothing like a small local race to boost your stats and your 5K confidence – 5th overall Female, I’ll take it! 🙂
You know the drill – we love our local pizza and Summer Pale Ales here. Mellow Mushroom delivers both:
One ale and one and a half pieces of pie later, I called it a night. 5K success, fueled up and ready to Volunteer at two races in one day. But that’s for another post…
Who else raced/ran this weekend?
