We are back with another race recap! Last weekend I ran our local Harvest Festival 5k. I was happy to see that this race returned this year since it canceled last year. There are so many great things about local races. Small race size, easy parking, and a real restroom.
I was still running neck and neck with this kid. I told myself there is no way that this kid is going to beat me so I stepped it into high gear for the last stretch of the race. I crossed the finish line and right after he followed.
I congratulated him and asked, how old he was. He replied and said "Thanks, I'm 10!" I told him he gave me a run for my money today, great job! It's hard to believe that a 10 year was my competition. He definitely made me push myself.
Afterwards, we walked over to a local bakery to get a treat while we waited for the award ceremony. I chose an Oreo cupcake and it was delicious. A perfect post race treat.
I received first place in my Age Group with a time of 22:04. This is always one of my favorite races and I was happy to see it return this year!
Do you have a favorite local race you look forward to running every year? -L
