Two years ago I ran the Dash for Downs at Gemini Springs. This year the race was held as the Running with the Chromies 5K. This is a local race that benefits Welcoming Hearts, a charity that helps those with special needs and their families.
Training & Goals Still muddling along, enjoying races. Goal-setting and goal-oriented training aren't on my radar right now.
Race Day: March 24, 2018 It's so nice to be able to bike to a race. There was no packet pickup before race day. The start ended up being a bit delayed as people were still waiting in line for bibs & t-shirts at 8:30. It was 57°F with 67% humidity when the race began at 8:49AM.
Mile 1: 9:42
Mile 2: 10:33
Mile 3+: 11:09, 1:05
After the Race The finish line clock had a camera running so runner finishes were captured. Unfortunately the photos from the camera were lost for some of the runners, including me.
Again the race was accompanied by a small fundraiser festival put on by Welcoming Hearts.
Recommendation This is an okay little race. I thought it was funny that our medals were in our packets, so there was none of the usual post-race medal-giving pageantry. Too bad about the photos but free race pictures weren't advertised so I guess it's not fair to complain about that.
Chip time: 32:24 Placement details: 4/8 in Age Group, 44th overall out of 116 finishers Race Amenities: Cotton t-shirt and finisher medal for all Cost: $27.50
Deltona's Love Your Heart 5K was a nearby race that I could bike to, so registering was practically inevitable. The cute cupid finisher's medal didn't hurt, either. This race took place at Deltona Middle School and benefitted the American Heart Association. The out-and-back course followed the bike trail spur from the school to Thornby Park and back.
This beach race sponsored by Halifax Health benefits Team RWB, a military veteran support group. The run was full of folks dressed in patriotic gear and included a few in over-the-top costumes as well. The Team RWB Freedom 4 Mile Beach Run is a four mile...
The DeBary 5K is sponsored in large part by a local contracting company, DBK. Proceeds go towards DeBary Elementary School and the Kruid Foundation. The 2016 race was the 2nd annual.
Training & Goals I had just come back from a 10-day holiday in Costa Rica...
I ran Naughty or Nice last year, so this marks the first time I've run the same race two years in a row. This is a fun costume race with free photos with Santa and Mrs. Claus and a candy cane stilt walker. Last year there...
