Yesterday I ran in the inaugural Rock-N-Roll Portland 10K Race!
Last year I ran the Half, but since I’ve signed up for a Half in June this year I ended up trying out the new 10K event. I’m really glad I did! Here are three awesome things about my most recent 10K:
- I ran about 5 minutes faster than any other 10K this year! It was not a PR for all 10Ks I have ever done, but it is a recent PR and I will take it! I was able to really push it the last mile and felt great after. This is a HUGE confidence builder for me as I go into my last month of training before my Half in June.
- The T-Shirt and Medal are awesome! I can’t wait to wear the shirt tomorrow during my run. Maybe I will sport the medal too 🙂
- Some goofy Portlander ran the race in an American Flag speedo and nothing else [don’t worry Matt – I didn’t look…. too long. I did get a good laugh at all the reactions he was getting]. He was a ways ahead of me, but I often heard the many cheers, whistles and hoots he was getting along the race route and people were stopping and asking him to pose with them in pictures so I often got a good glimpse of him… but for the life of me I can’t remember where he pinned his race number ?!?!
Question for you: What is the craziest outfit you ever saw (or sported!) during a race?
