2013 Kelly Shamrock 5K

Before the start

My first 5K in almost 2 years! Just like the Baltimore Half, I helped a good friend and his family train for this 5k. I stayed with him the whole time! We couldn't have asked for more perfect weather. The post race beer was exciting , too . Thanks Charm City Run!

I finished 1891 out of 4241, my bib number was 2513, and my time was 31:03
Downhill at the start
Me with Ellen & Katie, two XC running buddies from high school!

Expo? A. Packet pickup was at your local Charm City Run store, which was very convenient 
Premium? B. Brooks tech shirt, gender specific, but the women's cut is always short...
Water Stops/Aid Stations? A. Just the right amount for a 5K. Wish they had used paper cups though!
