    So I’m a little biased as a pediatric endocrinologist but I did really enjoy the event. It is at Griffith Park and follows the typical 5K loop. The course is on dirt but really flat and easy. Before the race parents of kids with growth disorders told their stories which was great and there were quite a few booths to look at. While I enjoy races at Griffith Park usually they aren’t my fastest but I was on fire the day of the race and had my second fastest 5K and easily broke 30 mins. At the end you get a small pretty basic medal. Not the greatest medal ever but a lot of 5Ks don’t give them out so I appreciated it. Instead of given at the finish line each runner went on stage to get the medal which was a nice personal touch. You also get a cotton T-shirt with packet pick-up. I know the doctor who leads the event and he did a great job. There was also pizza afterwards which you could eat with the families but this was when I was still a crazy strict vegan so I opted out of the pizza. Along with a fun morning of running the race raises money for children’s growth disorders something near and dear to my heart.
