Race Recap: Crawlin Crab 5k 2017

This recap is more than a little late, but better late than never.

Crawlin Crab was my first race back after my injury.  I planned on taking it very easy.

Packet Pickup and Expo

I opted for race day pickup.  I was there before packet pickup opened up.  I waited it out in the lobby of the convention center after I picked up my packet.

Race Day Conditions/Attire

Early October is usually pretty warm, and this year was no exception.  I wore capris and a tank top.  I’m not going to share my red faced post race picture, but let me tell you, it showed how hot it was 🙂

Pre Race

I waited around the convention center after packet pickup, and headed out to my corral relatively early.

Race Time

This was my first race back this fall, and first race after my neuroma that I developed in late spring.  I had only been walking -hadn’t ventured into any running yet.  I decided to take it pretty easy.

The course was a bit different this year, and went through a petting zoo.  Yes, a petting zoo.  You could literally stop and take pictures with donkeys, alpacas, etc.  I should have gotten a few pictures – but it was a ton of fun watching everyone else do so.

The miles ticked away pretty easy and before I knew it, the race was over. I finished in 50:17.

After Party

Have you ever done a race that goes through a unique location?
