Boulder Dash 5K


This race was sponsored by Northside Hospital Forsyth with race distances of 5K and 10K.  I ran the 5K because I want to work on my speed and love the idea of getting done in 30 minutes or less.  It was a little challenging this morning due to the fact the race started at 9 AM, it was HOT and HUMID.  To add insult to injury, majority of the race was up hill.  I usually do not require water but today was an exception.  Unfortunately we did not have a hydration station until after mile 2.  Although this was very late in the race I was very appreciative to have it as opposed to nothing at all.
The finish was a block away from the start so they provided buses back to the start.  This was a nice touch considering the start was not quite a mile away.
