Corporate 5K and Meeting Maddy (again)!
What a super night!! The race results have already been posted and Maddy's team and my team took first place in our respective divisions!!
The weather was perfect for the event. Perhaps a tad warm but not humid and with a breeze. The race start seemed to go much more smoothly this year, but even though I was within reasonable distance of the starting line, it still took me 2 and a half minutes to get to get there.
My daughter (who was celebrating her 12th birthday) and I ran the 5K together. She had some tough moments but she hung in there. Then in the last stretch, totally outran me to the finish. Our time last year was around 47 min. Our goal was to do 45 min or better. Our final clock (not net) time was 43:50 min :-).
Maddy had an awesome finish time as well, but I will let her report her race on her blog. It was great seeing her again - and this time I got a picture.
My job as captain and team coordinator went well. 75 people registered and at least 60+ arrived and participated. Everyone had a great time eating, drinking and enjoying spending time together before and after the race. I am looking forward to recruiting a bigger team for next year. In my spare time of course!!!
