I was excited to run the Gridiron 5k on Saturday, August 24 (I realize I haven't been putting dates on races, I don't think. Oops).
Any time I can show my Gator spirit, I'm all about it. I saw this amazing skirt from Rock City Skirts and had her make me one too. And then my friends and I ordered cute shirts from Etsy.
Cori and Heather were going to run together so I was going off on my own since I was going to run the whole thing with no walking breaks. It was nice to run through the UCF campus. I felt really good the whole race and for some reason, I thought my timing was better than it was. I thought I was on course to be well under 30 minutes, but I came in at 30:01. Boo! I grabbed a Gator towel and waited for Heather and Cori.
Then we headed into the Champion shop where you were fitted for a sports bra. And you got one free. (We later learned that my friend Heather was supposed to get the same size I did but got a Small. I gave her mine and I'll be giving away the small with some other goodies later on).
Then we had to take a picture with our school posters! Poor Cori--no Muhlenberg College poster for her!
We walked around and checked out the goodies--several free samples of food and contests to enter. I had to stop by the Gator tent and Heather stopped by the UCF tent.
In the race packet bags were two cups, a coozie, 2 tickets to a UCF football game, a Kind bar, and a tshirt. I was excited that you could put your favorite school and if it was a certain one, you got a shirt in that color.
I couldn't find any pictures of me running on the facebook page. Oh well!
I usually post my Runkeeper stats since that's what I've used since the beginning, but I forgot to stop the app for a while. So I'll post my Garmin stats instead.
