This past Sunday Chris and I ran the Rock CF 5k! It was an extra special race because it marked Chris’s 1 year runiversary! In addition to that, Chris and I went on our first date 2 years ago on that same date!
The reason that I like Rock CF so much is because it is always very well organized, it has a great scenic course, the race swag is awesome and the post race food can’t be beat. This year was no exception.
There was a new route for the 5k this year! We actually started the race inside the Grosse Ile Naval Air Station Hanger. It was very cool! The bf has pics of it over on his post, you can click here to check it out. The rest of the course went through residential areas of Grosse Ile and along the water.
I am happy to say that race day was much warmer than the last two races that Chris and I have done, so I didn’t struggle with my breathing at all. Woohoo! And because of which, I had a much more pleasurable race experience free of whining even. Go me!
Chris struggled a bit with shin splints but still had a good time.
How did I do?
It wasn’t a PR, my 5k PR is 26:33 but I wasn’t after one anyways. My goal was to whine less and have a good time. Mission accomplished!
Now to check out the race swag!
I really like the shirt but I think the medal was better the last two years.
Despite the medal, it was still a great race. Odds are, we will be back out there next year!
Did you have a race this past weekend? Tell me about it!
If not, what were you up to this weekend?
