I ran Nike’s Run Hit Wonder 5k last night. It was chip timed, so it was pretty accurate, and my time was 27:19 (8:48 pace). This is slower than by Gibbon’s 5k. But that wasn’t a chip race, and I think my biking has affected my running. I’m still happy with the sub-nine minute pace.
After the race, they gave out food and drinks. And anyone with an ID could get a small (probably 8 oz.) Michelob Ultra beer. However, one 8 oz. beer only whets the appetite. A couple women in our group were able to bat their eyelashes and get some more beer and beer tickets for us all. And by the end of the night, the people serving the beer just started giving it away. There was far more beer than consumers, so we were happy to provide balance. Proving, once again, that good things come to those who wait.
