Race Recap: 1st Annual District Delights 5k

Posted on January 28, 2013. Filed under: Uncategorized |

We successfully executed the 1st Annual District Delights 5k!  Yes, we only had 3 participants, but in our eyes, that is better than 0!   A huge thank you to Katie, Maya and Jeff for coming out to support us.  Also, thank you to Justin for coming out to help be part of the race support team.


A amazing helper!

We didn’t have powerade or any water on the course, but we had a great turnaround sign that we ran out to the halfway point before everybody arrived.  We definitely got some strange looks while carrying a rubber mallet, wooden stake and bright orange sign!

We arrived back to the “start” in time for our participants.  We actually only thought 2 people were coming for sure, so once they arrived, we set them off on their way and told them we’d meet them on the course.


and they’re off!

And they're back - Addy and Jeff running into the "finish line!"

Maya and Katie sprint to the end!

We thought we might not run the race with everybody and would just record the times at the end, but then realized we didn’t want to make anybody grab the turnaround sign for us.    Our third participant arrived right as we were about to head out, so the 3 of us went out together!

After we all finished – approximately 30 minutes later – although I’m not sure there is any official race time…we took the obligatory post race photo and sped off to Paul for some chocolate croissants, blueberry tarts and french onion soup!

We had the official raffle for the City Sports gift card and Maya was our lucky winner! The raffle involved us putting everyone’s Paul’s receipts into Addy’s hat. We are VERY official. Maya was pretty pumped about winning the gift card. I think a new foam roller is in her future 🙂

Drumroll please

Big winner!

We look forward to the 2nd Annual 5k, but maybe next time, it’ll be in the spring!
