Better late than never on this recap….
I have a love/hate relationship with this race. I love this race, because I love to see all of the costumes that people come up with. I hate this race, because its a 10k and it just feels like a forever long race.
Packet Pickup and Expo
I’ve started opting for more race day pickups, and this race was no exception. I love going early anyway so I can see all the different costumes people come in. I saw some great Walking dead costumes. Lots of superheroes, and lots of “sexy” versions of something.
Race Day Conditions/Attire
I’m completely lame and didn’t dress up. I wore capris length pants and a tshirt.
I got in line pretty early, because again, I wanted to see as many costumes as I could. I started one corral from the back because I planned on walking the entire time.
I’m not going to lie, I felt awful during this race. 6.2 miles might have well been 16. I was tired, unmotivated, and walking is SO SLOW. The first 3 miles went ok.
Mile 4, I started noticing I was getting a blister on my right heel. It proceeded to get worse and worse throughout the race, slowing me down even more.
I finished in 1:43:05.
The party was on the beach, and although the weather was nice, my blister made me not want to stay. Plus, I knew I had about a 1/2 mile walk back to the car.
I got my soup, ate that real quick then skipped the beer.
Sadly, I didn’t snap any pictures that day, not even of my medal!
Did you do any Halloween races this year? (gosh I know I’m so late!)
