This race has definitely changed over the years, it’s been getting more and more crowded. Buying the 5 pass from RAM Racing is still the best thing Joe & I did, it’s so much easier to do more races & pick (based on the gear, let’s be real!). These sweatshirts we saw were a MUST, so we added the Bucktown 5k to the list, even though we knew it’d be only a week after the ironman.. but I knew I could handle a 5k.
- The weather was actually pretty warm, I didn’t even know what to wear. I ended up in a t-shirt and tri shorts, since I’ve basically lived in those all summer.
- This course is a windy little neighborhood run, I love running through the ‘hood, it’s super fun and super flat.
- Time: 00:27:11 ( a few seconds slower than last year)
- Overall: 973 of 4,223
- Female:331 out of 2,618
- 25-29: 83 out of 578
I am really happy that I’m only a tad slower than last year, especially after an Iroman a week before! We are also crazy, because the following weekend (aka last weekend, I need to write a review since my legs are still sore) we did the Chicago Fall Half-Marathon and I PR’ed!
