Villa Park 5K – June 23, 2012

This was the third run in my quadruple crown series races. Very small run. Flat course though so that was ok. I could see doing a better time next year if I decide to do this one again. Beautiful neighborhood that you run through. I liked that it was small enough that parking was not an issue and I didn’t have to get there at the butt crack of dawn. But it was still large enough that I didn’t feel like I was the last one coming in. It also helped that this was a 5k/10k so some people that were behind me were finishing up their 10k. Of course the 10k winner beat my 5k time. Haha.

WetnWild 5K – June 16, 2012

This was the FUNNEST 5k I have ever done!! It’s not called the WETnwild 5k for nothing. This event was held at Knott’s Berry Farm/Soak City. It was a very cool race course since we got to run throughout all of Knott’s Berry Farm. The only problem was it was narrow. And there were a lot of people. So there were a couple times that I literally had to stop to make a turn because there were too many people and it was too crowded. But at the end, we got to run through Soak City and ran through the lazy river. It was a very cool experience! It also helped to cool me down after running the first part of the race. LOL! I went in shoes and all. Totally cool I tell you. ;) Of course, since we were “running” through water my time obviously suffered but it was good. I would totally do this again.

Anaheim 5K – June 9, 2012

I signed up for the Anaheim 5k as part of the quadruple crown race series (we are signed up for 4 races and get a medal at the end of the fourth race!). I did not get a medal for this race but there were quite a few goodies to pick up after the race. I liked this race. It wasn’t too large and the course was FLAT. That was good. Easy in and easy out for parking as well. My stats:

Time: 39:10
Overall: 786/1032
Age Group: 40/61 (Wow – That’s close to the bottom!)
