Sunday was my first 5k race of the season...Storm the Citadel 5k. The Citadel is a landmark here in Halifax...I've run this race before...as well as the Lucky 7 Relay at this site.
Susan picked me up at 8:40am (well...8:44 with Susan's time...hehe). We headed downtown to the race. The Citadel sits on top of a hill as it was a lookout for the city during war-times.
It was a chilly morning and Susan and I both dressed in layers!!
|By this point, I had tripped a 3rd time|
(with no fall), and had slowed my pace
just to finish
|Yes...we had to run/walk up those concrete stairs|
|You know this stung as I cleaned it up.|
Was it a good race? Would I recommend it? If you are trying to get a PB for a 5 or 10k...then...nope...this is not the race for you. There are too many places that can get bottle-necked, too many dark tunnels and uneven ground, not to mention that strollers were allowed despite the narrow conditions. If you want a run, just to do for fun...then yes...this is a great race for you. It is chip timed and really cheap at only $15 for the 5k. There was also water, apples, and bananas available to the runners after the they finished.
So now I need to get back out and do another run to get rid of the fear of falling again. That will happen tonight...I'll keep you posted!!! Thanks for stopping in to read about my adventurous 5k run!
