But today? I ran the Ryka Iron Girl 5-Mile Event with my Sis. It was only the 2nd year this run has taken place in Boston. What a great event!
We drove right into Boston without hitting any traffic. (Well, it was before 7 a.m.) Parking was a breeze all around the Seaport World Trade Center, although we did have to shell out $11. We got cool Ryka running shirts for entering, there were tons of vendors, a sweet medal was placed around our necks at the finish line (which my boyz are now fighting over) and there was a yummy breakfast buffet after the race! (where I may have snarfed down an entire bagel..with cream cheese...and fruit...and some croissant.)
The best part? It was all women. AND the course was completely FLAT. Bonus!
This was the first race I have done since having children. Sis and I made a pact that we will participate every year going forward, it was that much fun.
Up next? The Boston Half Marathon on October 7th. Methinks I have bitten off more than I can
*Anyone know of any 10K races taking place before October 7th? I'm thinking I'd like to run one before the--gulp--half marathon.
