- 3 miles/5K
- Road Race
This was my undergraduate institution's first such race with proceeds benefiting student scholarship at Le Moyne College. The race itself was a combination of both roads and also grass as the course meandered around the college campus. I myself was still coming off an injury a few months earlier at this point. I found the grass/terrain parts difficult as the grass had not been mowed and that slowed me down. Add in some hills on the campus yourself and you have a course that was both exhilarating and challenging at the same time.
Despite all this, the race itself was a lot of fun and all finishers received a pint glass for for their efforts. I intend to recommend to organizers that they should consider finisher's medals for next year in place of the pint glasses as #runswag is what many of us (myself included) are always looking to add to our collections! Still, a very enjoyable time!
