Event #22 - Nashville Predators Fangtastic 5k

Sorry for the delayed update! On Saturday, February 12th, Nate & I laced up our running shoes and hit downtown Nashville for the Nashville Predators Fangtastic 5k. We ran this race last year, so we knew what to expect. Luckily this year was much warmer which helped a lot.

Last year before this race, we hadn't trained a lot because it was SO cold out the months leading up to the race. That was obviously reflected in our time. This year, we hadn't run since around Christmas for the same reason, but we had started training at Crossfit CFT. For those of you who don't know what Crossfit is, you should check it out. Its been an incredible experience so far and we're in much better shape than we've ever been. We were excited to see how our training would effect our running (if at all), and did it ever. It wasn't our fastest race, but with the lack of running, and the hills of downtown, we were very excited with how we did. And as a bonus, we felt MUCH better throughout the race and at the end. So with our continued Crossfit CFT training we're excited to see how it will help Team G Shock!

Here are the official race results:

466th place - Sara Ross - 32:39
467th place - Nate Towne - 32:39

And in typical Team G Shock fashion, we took a few pictures before/after the race for you all.

before the race...felt good to have those jerseys on again!

enjoying our free tickets to the Preds game! :)

We've already signed up for our next race - details on that coming soon!
