We did this race in 2011 in 6 inches of snow and decided to go do it again this year anyway! This year, happy to say, was much better, weather-wise and race-wise! I had my best 10k time ever and, most important for me, I ran the whole race without walking! And there are some HILLS in this race! I am very happy with the race, my time, everything!
The course starts at Carl Sandburg Elementary School in Charleston and does a big clockwise loop out through the country and back to the school. I ran right past the road my mom lives on. The race organizers do a great job on this race. Lots of raffle items, shirts, hats, etc., and lots of food at the end. Also, runners have access to the school cafeteria, bathrooms, etc., before and after the race. It’s great.
My time was 1:04:02. Carl’s time was 57:55. He ALWAYS beats me! 🙂
Carl took this picture of me crossing the finish line. I was so happy! I feel like a runner again.
