I love my 5ks! Especially after those trail runs, lol. They are bittersweet; the first mile is a breeze, the second I’m debating if I’m going to pick up my pace or die, and the third goes by so fast I don’t even realize I just past the finish line! Well, that’s the way I see my 5ks =) My most recent Angels 5k & Fun Run had to be by far my favorite run and course. I wouldn’t think at 20 weeks pregnant I would say that.
The event itself along with the charities the race supported was enough to get me to register, let alone it was at Angel Stadium! Go Angels! I did study the course a few days before the race, not like this always helps as the course could change but it at least gives me an idea of where I’m going. Being pregnant (I forget sometimes) I wasn’t expecting to get a good time. This run surprised me though I did manage to maintain a 8 minute mile. The course was a nice flat surface with a slight dip when you ran through the dugout near the end of mile 3 inside Angel Stadium. I think I’m still in “awe” that I wasn’t running uphill, hahaha. The weather was calling for rain but started just after we finished the race. This run reminded me a lot of the OC Fair Run; awesome vendors, great location and a whole lot of fun. I know I’ll be registering again for this run next year, this time with a double BOB ;p
