RACE RECAP: Bucktown 5k

Screen Shot 2017-09-18 at 10.33.55 AM
Getting ready for the ironman has involved a ton of not-so-fun workouts & longer races, so a nice, late-start 5k is always something I look forward to. Joe & I headed over for an early Sunday morning workout, with perfect weather, and a smaller crowd and slightly updated course made for a great race.
The Weather: 
The weather was super warm, this random batch of 70s & 80s made me so grateful it was only a 5k!
The Course: 
This course is a windy little neighborhood run, I love how much the neighborhood supports it, there’s so many people out and about cheering.

The Gear: 
I’ve got my handy new Ballou Skies race shirt, threw on my Hokas for comfort, the usual race belt, hat and sunglasses were necessary.

Race Stats: 
Time: 26:14
Overall: 441 of 2,168
Female:113 out of 1,261
25-29: 26 out of 215
Overall this was a favorite – and now it’s just a few days until we hop in the car and head down to Chattanooga!
