My 5 mile PR is 43:59 and I had NO PLANS to come anywhere near that time for this race. I just wanted to have fun with Tracy and enjoy the sunshine. :)
I started my morning off right with a honey wheat bagel and whipped cream cheese, OJ, and some pretty awful coffee. I definitely need to invest in some nice coffee beans.
I picked Tracy up from the train and we headed to Salem around 10:30. We parked, got our bibs, tech-shirts, and ankle chips, and walked around the park. There were ~200 people doing the race, and a few hundred more doing the walk. There was music, clowns, and even a Zumba class for people to warm up. We took some nerdy pictures to kill the time.
This wasn't my fastest race, but it was one of my favorites. I hope to do it again next year!
