I’m a sucker for anything that benefits our Veterans otherwise I wouldn’t pay to run 5K at this point since I’m training for my run’s in January and running more then 5K every day. Veterans, Military and Kids; my weak spots and I always get suckered into some sort of benefit or fund raiser.
My GPS failed off the line and didn’t start working until I was about 3/4 mile into the run so I didn’t trust pace numbers I was getting off it; it was jumping between 18 and 7 minutes per mile. It may have been a blessing in disguise because I think I just ran the best 5K ever! I’m good with my time ..
The race didn’t get started until after 9:00AM and the sun was already up and hot. Just standing there you were sweating if you were not shaded. I fail to understand why they start these races so late! but, I enjoyed the run and the company 🙂
There were no finishers medals at this event only top male and top female Military and Civilian were given medals which is fine with me I’d rather the money go to the cause. If you were a veteran though you got this blue bag and inside it I found a DAV 5K Challenge Coin which is kind of cool, I’m adding it to my collection of command coins.
Now off to finish my week with a 7 mile run! See you soon!
