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.
