The race is held in the morning before the festival really gets going, but a lot of the vendors were setting up when we got there so it was fun to see everything. There was a good crowd at the race, and we were excited to try a new course. The race had a bit of a delayed start (try 40 minutes), which wasn't great, but it happens. Once we got going, everything was great. The course took us through Germantown and then down around Bicentennial park and through (literally..THROUGH) the Farmers Market. There were a few hills, but nothing major, and other than the smell in the market house, it was great!
We ran into some friends before the race, and we got to enjoy our post-race beer with them once we were all done! The festival looked like a lot of fun, and we hope to do the race again someday!
Here are our official results:
333rd place - Nate Towne - 27:27
452nd place - Sara Towne - 29:37
I ran with my camera this time to try and get some pictures other than Nate & I in front of the car. :) Enjoy...
Before the race. Whatcha looking at Tater?
Glad we only had to run the 5k, and not to Berlin.
Running around the Farmers Market...
...and through the Market House.
Right before running in Lee said "hold your breath!"
After - cheers!
