Friday Five: Corporate 5K Quickie Race Report

I need to write a proper race report for last night's Corporate 5K, but I have 100+ photos to go through and videos, and a busy day ahead, so I'll do it this weekend. In the meantime, you get a mini race report Friday Five style :)
  1. According to Track Shack, the race had 617 teams and 12,633 runners/walkers!
  2. Team Stats:
    • 34 registered participants; 31 completed the race (we had 9 last year + 1 cheerleader)
    • 12 completed their first 5K!
    • 7 returned from last year, and our cheerleader Sammy did the race this year
    1. One of our runners, Bob Reed sang the national anthem at the race with his quartet Makeshift. View the video on YouTube.
    2. Per my garmin, I ran 3.13 in 34:37 (11:03 min/mile pace). My clock time was 43:20 as it took almost 9 minutes to cross the start line. Read my mini race report on dailymile.
    3. Below is a group photo of most of the team before the race. You can see more photos on Flickr, and I'll be adding more to that album soon.

    Wow, girl, look at you getting faster and faster. I bet you'll be at a 10 minute mile in no time!

    I love how you got a group photo shot. Awesome.

    Hee hee, I hope so! I'm doing a 5k next weekend and hope to PR. My goal is 32, but I would be so happy if I could pull of 31!

    You have no idea what a photo crazy person I was. I kept making them pose for all kinds of things: full group, new runners, those who did it before, etc. And then when we realized someone had been inside I made them do it all over again. LOL
