I came, I saw, I ran

I did a 5k yesterday evening; I made a pros v. cons list.


Cons ... my only complaints:
  • no t-shirt - granted probably one of the last things I need is another race t-shirt, but for a $20.00 entry fee? ... show me the t-shirt!
  • double loop course - I did a handful (plus a few more) races last summer/ fall, and none of them were a double loop course; I don't know what it was exactly, I just wasn't a fan.
  • I am out of shape
  • I loathe running


Pros:
  • evening race - I did one evening race last summer, and I really enjoyed that one, too. It was nice not to be up early on a Saturday morning for a change.
  • flat course
  • good playlist
  • nice weather
  • good company
  • post race food - instead of the typical fruit & water like other smaller races ... they fed us well yesterday. Treats included: oranges, Chick-fil-A, hot dogs, chips, water, and Gatorade
  • iced towels! - as soon as you finished the race, you were handed an iced towel ... very refreshing ... and elitist feeling
