Well, Woodstock was a BLAST! There were over 1,500 runners and boy was it an experience! I of course pushed my babies in the double jogger. My finishing time was 40:07! I was stoked! I went into this race with a goal of 40 minutes! How close was I?!?! I am beyond proud of myself. This was a fantastic race. From start to finish this race was well organized,smooth and all around FUN!
Now, the following week we ran Run Baby Run 5k. This was not such a great experience. I knew going into this race it may not be well organized because it was only the 2nd race they have put on and boy was I right!!! Not only was it deathly hot the course that we runners ran was TOUGH to say the least. My finish time was 40:57 which considering the hills we had, I'll take it. But when we were finished, I saw people finshed who I knew started behind me, and never passed me. So, I'm like, "Whaaaa"? We were informed by a volunteer at the finish line that some of the walkers took a diiferent route! She said, "It's a shame some of the walkers are getting better times than those of you who ran the whole thing because they took another route"! A route that was NOT 3.1 miles. I came in third in the stroller category on the correct route, but my third place medal was given to a walker who took the shorter course. Can you say pissed off? They knew these people didn't do the right course yet they were still rewarded? How does that work? Anyway, I will probably not do this run again next year if that is how it will be done.
We don't have anymore runs scheduled this year, YET! But we are totally looking forward to doing more.
