Event #26 - East Nashville Tomato 5k

In the last 26 months we have run 26 races for Team G Shock. That is incredible to me. And we ran them all with the same cause in mind, The Prostate Cancer Foundation. The race last weekend was no different.

There were about 1100 runners (an amazing crowd), and lots of spectators along the course. We were even lucky enough to have some of our Crossfit CFT coaches & fellow athletes come out to cheer us on! It was nice to see some friendly faces along the course, especially in the middle of some of those hills.

With all of our additional training, we improved on our times from last year, which is exciting. Here are the official results:

386th place - Nate Towne - 29:24
491st place - Sara Towne - 31:13

Before the start, we noticed a masked man with a jogging stroller rigged with 2 video cameras among the runners. At one point during the race, we heard someone from behind ask "Is anyone running for charity?". My immediate reaction was to raise my hand, and here came the guy with the cameras. He handed me the stroller and asked me to talk about our charity. I was happy to spread the word of Team G Shock, even if I was halfway through a pretty tough 5k. I was able to find the video to share with you all! Check it out.

And as always, we snapped a few pictures along the way as well.


After. We did it!

Now its time to prepare for the upcoming Warrior Dash that we'll face in September! It should be a good challenge for Team G Shock!
