There was a 1/2 marathon option too. Considering he was yelling "All done" when we still had a quarter mile left to go in the 5k, I think we made the right choice by not running the longer distance. =)
This was a fun race. The weather was perfect - cool and crisp and the race is out on country roads that back up to the mountains so it can't be beat. People dress up in costumes, so M wore his Leopard costume. He was a fan favorite of course, and it kept him warm too!

We finished under 30 minutes (barely) which I was glad to see, but my mile #2 was pretty slow. There was another lady pushing a jogging stroller too and she and I kept passing each other on the long uphill during the second mile. I'm sure we were quite a sight, and she had a dog with her too! I was impressed. I was dragging on the uphill and even walked for a minute or two so I tried to let it loose on the downhill. Happy with my 8:35 mile #3!
