A few weeks ago I ran the Run 4 Ricky 5k in Buena, NJ. Since then I haven’t blogged a whole lot. My quarter of grad school came to an end last week which kept me extremely busy as I had a lot to do in a little bit of time and now I currently have no electricity–blogging has been on the bottom of my priority list the past 1-2 weeks. Sorry!
So here is a brief recap of the race:
I was the 4th woman overall. I ran 20:44. It was hot, humid, and I felt lousy during the race. I also wore runderwear.
The race was similar to a cross country race. It started in a field and then after about 1 mile on the road went into a trail. After the trail we ran on a shaded bike path for a while before finishing on the feild again.
The race is for a good cause. It is in honor Ricky Wilcox, a Beuna High School student who was killed in a car accident. All of the proceeds go to a scholarship fund for graduating seniors.
My mom and Brittany also ran the race. I made them stop for a selfie.
I was 4th overall woman but 1st in my age group so I won a $50 gift card to The Outback Steakhouse.
Yes, I would do this race again!
