I signed up for this race because of the title and the low cost. First race postpartum and first race in Kansas. It started and ended at a college and we were able to stay inside before and after the race, which was on point because it was very chill outside. I was able to park next to the start/finish, so I waited in my car for the start minutes before the race started.
Race was on a parkway trail, out and back. Figures I would be in the 1:40 range with this race and my fitness level. 7:40 pace seemed challenging but doable, so I tried to hang on as long as I could. I held until about mile 7 and then I was around 8 mm.
Everytime I saw a "chocolate Rush" sign with an arrow, I ran faster to the chocolate waiting for me. At the turn around, I was the fourth lady. By mile 8 I caught up with number three and left her behind. The last mile and a half as kept falling behind. Last push was up a big hill into the wind. I was proud of my efforts.
Finish line had THE spread of amazing goodies. I indulged and made my way home. David gave me the morning off from the kiddos.
