Race Recap: Bucktown 5k

Bucktown 5k

This fall 5k was a fun one, it was great weather (first weekend it started to get cool) and it was a great time with a bunch of friends. The main issue I have lately with this race though is that if you don’t live nearby – you should bike, walk, run on train it because parking is going to be a b*tch!

The Weather: 

  • The weather was chilly that early in the morning, 50’s or so, but made for great sprint & running weather!

The Course: 

  • This course is a windy little neighborhood run, I always love having houses to stare at as well as adorable little kids who just woke up to watch a parent or neighbor run by!

The Gear: 

  • I FOROGT my Ballou Skies t-shirt (bad me) and wore an IU hoosiers one instead, and of course brought some Nuun with me to energize beforehand, rocked shorts since it’s probably one of the last times I can.
Race Stats:
  • Time: 00:26:24
  • Overall: 772 of 3,240
  • Female:226 out of 2,064
  • 25-29: 52 out of 440

Overall, this was fun, I forgot the end was so near I’m sure I could’ve pushed harder but we will save that for the upcoming Half Marathon in 2 weekends!

Race Stats:
  • Time: 00:26:24
  • Overall: 772 of 3,240
  • Female:258 out of 293?Overall, this was a great run and now I’m onto an Olympic Distance (terrifying) this weekend… we will see how that goes! Afterwards, I can rest for 2 months.
