Brat Trot 5K
June 1, 2019
Signed up for this one 20 minutes before the start because it was in town, near my office and also… brats.
Bryant loves the stroller rides now, so I wasn’t worried about him for this one. Weather was great, too. We’re really just practicing for “the big race” now — Father’s Day 4M race in Kansas City in two weeks.
We’ve got our distance down, this was time to work on speed.
But first, silly selfies…
We spent just about the entire race (after weaving through people in the beginning) trying to avoid letting a fast guy with a stroller passing us.
The course took us out and around a loop near my office. When we got near the building, we came to a fork in the path. The route took us left, but Bryant pointed to the right right because I’m fairly certain he recognized the building. The kid is smart, man.
I thought we had him, but when I pulled out my bib to hold up for the finish line folks to see (they suggested right before the start not to put it on your leg and I realized especially with the stroller, that was a suggestion I shouldn’t ignore), we must’ve slowed just a little and the guy with the other stroller sped up and almost got us — ALMOST.
It took me a while to catch my breath, but we eventually made our way to the food.
A little bit bummed that I lost my bib, so I won’t have it to save with all my others. Must’ve left it sitting on the ground when I sat down after the finish, then walked away.
Oh well. No big deal. Good morning and a fun event.
