This is the 4th time I have ran this race, and I had a PR at this one! Each year I aim to run just a bit faster than I did the year before.
Before the race, Kelly and I got our annual picture taken 🙂
The course is always so fun, and does a great job of winding around downtown. My absolute favorite part of the course is running back towards the city along the lake. At one point you make a slight left turn, and the beautiful skyline is in sight.
My mom captured this picture of me around mile 6. It doesn’t look like I am smiling, but I swear I was enjoying myself!Another great part of this race is around mile 10. They have giant tubs of water and give you water soaked sponges from the tubs. You can either have a sponge fight or drench yourself in water… or both!
After the race with the Hawkeye flag!
Race 4 has been my best thus far, but I hope to PR again at race 6!
