As you know, I started this string of running events 7 weeks before I started the blog, so I have a little catching up to do…
This was my second 5k of the weekend – and I finished in 40:39! That’s down from 49:44 the previous weekend. My only goal for this one was to finish at least one second faster from than the previous day’s 5k (44:07), and I accomplished that.
This was a really fun race. Part of it was through a random neighborhood. Some people came out on their balcony to have coffee and watch, which I thought was nice. As we got farther in, part of it was by the beach, which was pretty.
They played a ton of Michael Jackson at this race’s finish, which made me pretty ecstatic. The finish festivities were something to write home about – free massages, delicious snacks, lovely volunteers, and most importantly, Compete Green had a booth where I got to spin a wheel, and I spun the winning space! I got a free race entry (which of course is super special. They might as well have been giving me gold)!
Everything about this race was awesome – the people, the scenery, the general city of Oxnard, the medals, the staff, etc. All of it. They also do a half marathon here and it’s going on my list of 52 I want to do this year.
