Event: Stars N Stripes 5K
Location: Blue Springs, MO
I signed up for this event before I found a Fourth of July run closer to home… oh well… I signed Bowie (6) up for the Kid Run as well.
The course description mentioned a beautiful scenic course, but in actuality, it was just doing laps through a shopping mall parking lot. Fail. The volunteers were really friendly and the medals were really nice…. but doing laps around a parking lot didn’t really make my want to push hard. (Considering I had injured myself doing the Double Road Race just days before).
Bowie was disappointed that the Kid Run was very short – he really likes competing long distance. Wonder where he gets that from? But his medal rack is filling up so he doesn’t complain too loudly.
