Arrrgghhhh You Ready To Race???

Last weekend was the 2013 Gasparilla Distance Classic. If you have never participated in one of these races, I highly recommend giving it a try, especially if you like cooler weather, a water view, and an occassional pirate spotting! There are multiple distance races, including a 15k, 5k, 8k and half marathon!

This year I participated in the Select 55 Challenge, which involved the 15k run on Saturday and an 8k on Sunday. Although I did not hit a PR on this one (1:25:10 half marathon; 45:13 8k) both were great races.

A nice view of downtown Tampa at the race start

On your marks....

Just an awesome view during the 15k along Bayshore.
This little family has been out here every year giving out bites of Krisy Kreme doughnuts during the 15k...Thank you!

She even wore the hat!
The 8k start.

Finisher medals....they are awesome every year! Congrats to all who participated!
