the race was a huge success!! 88 people turned out for our first Go, Jump in the Lake event (52 for the 5K and 26 for the Fun Run/Walk.) and about 20 of them really DID jump in the lake afterwards. FUN!!
how sad am i that i wasn't among them!!
why, you may ask. well, it proved to be very tricky to fulfill my "day-of" responsibilities as race director AND be serious about running it. oh, and it doesn't help that i haven't run a step since mid-july...
the great news? thanks to our wonderful sponsors, all of the registration fees can be considered pure profit for the Muse Park Playground project.
other great news?? lots of compliments (and there were some serious runners out!) for a first ever event, i am so pleased with how organized and detailed we were able to be.
and even better news?? i am soooooo ready to start running again!!
