Race Recap: NYRR Mini 10k & Run for the Oceans 5k June 8, 2019

Isn’t the medal so cute!

Saturday was a jam packed day!  I pulled double duty with a 10k in the morning, and 5k in the evening. The day started with the NYRR Mini 10k in Central Park.  This is one of my favorite races of the year because it is all women.  They also use to have the best race shirt when Oakley was the sponsor, but now it is a regular cheapy NB shirt that I’ll probably end up donating to charity.

This race starts out right on Columbus Circle, and treks up 5th Avenue for a mile and a half.  This portion of the race is relatively flat, and pretty shaded so its nice.  Then we cut into Central Park, and the hill work begins.  I ran the first couple of hills, but there is a monster hill that goes on forever that I couldn’t be bothered with, so I gingerly walked up that one.  All in all this race still remains one of my favs, especially with the red bagels, and flowers at the finish.  I’ll definitely be back for another round next year.

Next up was Adidas Run for the Oceans, at Domino Park in Brooklyn.  I’ve been running with Adidas for about 8 months now, and they always put on awesome events, and this one was no different.  This race was to bring awareness to the plastic polluting our oceans.  Adidas is donating $1 per 1km ran to Parley Ocean School for runs logged through the app runtastic through June 16th.  CLICK HERE to sign up.

This one was special because I got to run it with my son, and this was his very first 5k.  He had a ball!
