It’s been a busy, busy week of running related events. I have worked at a race, ran a 5k and volunteered at a race expo. Plus 2 half marathons coming up this weekend.
Packet stuffing for the harvest moon 5k. This race is put on by the Kenosha running club, such an awesome club, we at pizza, counted shirts, stuffed packets and as always had fun.
Harvest moon 5k, I got there early, chatted with everyone, checked out the course and figured out where I wanted to take pictures. I have never done this race so it was a bit foreign to me, but I’ve run at the rec plex before so I sort of knew what to expect. I took a bunch of picture of the start and a lot of the finishers. The race was at 6:30pm, which made photography tough for me, I’m pretty good with my DSLR, but as the light got low and the runners were fast, I was not so good, but it was a learning for me.
Corporate challenge 5k in Milwaukee. I was on our SC Johnson team, there were about 50 of us and they offered a bus so I took it, beat having to drive and park for this since it was company sponsored. I ran was faster than I should have, but it was fun to see all the SCJ people out on the course. The race came with a small meal after and just as we finished eating and with awards it started pouring, our bus was parked a few blocks away so we ran in the pouring rain to the bus, I’m happy the rain waited until after the race but I was still soaked the whole ride home.
After a short ride on the metra and a mile or so walk, I was ready to work at the Women Rock Chicago expo. I got to greet the runners as they came in to get their packet and hand them a little packet pickup checklist. It was fun and really nice to see the team from Team Ortho again, I really enjoy working with them.
Up next tomorrow half marathon number 1 for the weekend. Can’t believe I’m doing Women Rock Chicago and Biggest Loser Racine this weekend, lets hope I survive 2 half marathons!!!
