Flight of the Vampire 10k PR! Recap
Little dude and I post race victory pose!
Strong. Happy. Elated.This is how this race went: 100000x better than July’s. A whole different racing experience than the last 10k. Fall may be the perfect racing season for me. It was a small local race. There were 200+ participants in the 5k race and only 56 in the 10k. So nabbing 1st in my age division was kinda on my side with the smallness of the race. Plus there were other big races that weekend going on elsewhere.
1st in age division
OMGoodness! I did it! My freakout face. Pretty isn’t it?
There were tons of people dressed up for this race in the Vampire and Halloween spirit. I was dressed up as the serious runner. Ha!
Now the klutz that I am I just couldn’t leave this race uninjured. I guess I had my watch strapped on too tight…oops. at least no iv’s were needed.
Overall this race was well executed. From the volunteers to the post race snacks. They even had bigger water cups this time. Thank the Lord. The only bummer….the goodie bags weren’t so good. Just had pencils, emery boards and papers…nah. I didn’t even bother grabbing one up. I got my t-shirt and medal. It was all good.
Yup. It was all good!
