Free! Free! Free! was the cost of this 5k celebrating the one year anniversary of Sole Sports running store in Scottsdale.
One of the reasons I love to race is to see my running friends. Ragnar Rae and my friend Jessie met me at the race and it was great hanging out with them before and after the race. The race itself was low key with only a timing clock but they still had great food and awesome door prizes (which I didn't win). It's funny because during the race I didn't notice how hot it was. If I were to run 3 miles by myself, I would be miserably hot.
I think I finished in 23:15. I forgot to make mental note of the finishing time and at the start forgot to set the Garmin to find the satellites so I didn't have a true finishing time. I'm pleased with how the race went because it is summer and running any quick pace is big effort for me.
My friend Jessie is a budding runner and got a PR yesterday, 32 something so I'm going to give her my free socks as a PResent.
