On Saturday, I ran the 5 mile at the Run for L'Arche. This is my fourth time running the race (find my previous race reports here, here and here) and have loved running it every time. After missing out on the race last year, I knew I wanted to run it this year.
Race package pick up was held Tuesday to Saturday, and I work close to the downtown location so I grabbed mine on Wednesday during lunch. I was in and out of there in 5 minutes. The race package had your bib, package of information, race shirt, buff and magnet for your fridge.
The race didn't start until 10:15am, which gave us plenty of time to get our stuff together before heading down to Eau Claire (Mr.D and Amelia came too). I met up with Nicole, Leslie, Jen, Ang and Crystal before the race. We had time to chat before one last bathroom break and heading out to the start line. It was a little chilly to start, but the temperature started to warm up and it was a great temperature for running. The race started at Eau Claire and went along the river towards Edworthy Park.

After crossing the finish line, I grabbed my medal, caught my breath and then headed over to see Mr.D and Amelia. They actually saw me finish this time ;) We waited near the finish line to see Ang, Nicole and Leslie finish. We headed inside and grabbed water, a banana, granola and apple. We all somehow missed the pancake truck!
Another fantastic race! Hope everyone had a great race. Thank you to Run for L'Arche for letting me blog about my training :)
