Race Recap: 2017 Alpenfest Run

Date: July 15th, 2017

Location: Gaylord, MI

The 2017 Alpenfest Run was my second ‘official’ 5K. I arrived way too early and spent a bunch of time awkwardly sitting around and waiting for the 5K to start. I was nervous, I had only been running for about eight months at this point and not very consistently so I wasn’t sure how I was going to do.

The run was quick, actually my fastest 5K at the time according to RunKeeper. Luckily it s a nice and flat course as well.  I ended up placing third in my age group (30-34) and finished the run in 23:52.  Not bad, a little under an eight minute per mile pace!

Overall I enjoyed the run and had a good day! I ended up biking for 14 miles after the race because I still had some extra energy 🙂
