The weekend of May 16th and 17th I participated in two races: the Live to 100 5k, and the NCRC Classic Half Marathon. The first was the result of a fundraiser for Arts in Action at one of the schools I work at. I put up for auction a 5k entry and pacing for a 5k and one of my Girls on the Run girls won. She and I picked a race and ran it together. It was her first run where she didn’t have one of her parents pacing her. As with many 5ks the food at the end was an awesome spread. It looked like a bake sale there were so many delightful homemade treats.
The next day, a bunch of us did the NCRC Classic half at Umstead. It was a fun run — full of hills. It was part of the triple crown for the spring. I ran most of the race with Tracy and Kristen, but towards the end, Tracy picked up the pace and finished strong.
