Allison 's thoughts:

This past weekend Peter and I ran the Bowerman 5K at the Nike World Headquarters in Beaverton, Oregon with over 700 other runners. The Bowerman 5K is listed as one of the seven must-do 5K races in the United States. After running it we’d sure agree that it’s a must-do.

We loved the race because…

You get to run through the Nike World Headquarters.
The race doesn’t start bright and early in the morning.
The course is relatively flat.
It was a beautiful night to run.
Added Bonus: The race tee was cute!
Being that I hadn’t ran more than 2 miles at a time since we moved to Portland (we moved in April) I was more than nervous that I wouldn’t be able to finish this 5K without walking. Even though I was nervous I laced up my shoes and decided that I was going to rock this 5K.

Turns out there’s something about running on the Nike campus that will give you endurance like you’ve never seen before. I didn’t walk once, nor did I even feel like I needed to walk! It sure helps that the entire course was relatively flat.
