The 80’s Called, They Want Their Race Back
I have not been officially training for any races this summer and instead have been doing some hill and speed work. This 5K race came up and my firm was sponsoring a group to run in it. It was not a big or fancy race, all the proceeds went to the United Way of Forsyth County. We had a good turn out and the weather went from very foggy to a beautiful sunny autumn day. The route was through Tanglewood Park with gently rolling hills. There wasn’t a chip or a very organized finish line. Still, everyone was dressed up with something from the 80’s, some more than others. My favorite was someone dressed as a Rubik Cube. I was hoping to finish in 27:00. I did a PR and finished at 26:14 and won not only my age group but I was faster than the winner of the younger age group. I felt great and it was the first time I have ever won in my age group. I think we forget how much fun these little charity races can be. I am searching for one in November so let me know if you here of one.
