(My doctor had cleared me to run 3 miles without walk breaks, so why not?) It was a small local charity race run by Santa Rosa Marathon, so I figured it would be logistically well-run, which it was. The course was basically just a 2.5K loop around a shopping mall outlined with traffic cones (5Kers did two loops, 10Kers did four), which was fine except for a few weird turns on the first lap (to make the distance work out, I guess?). It was small (224 finishers) and kind of expensive for a 5K, but hey, it’s a charity race, so whatever. Also you got a light hoodie, a small logo beer stein, and a mug of free beer after (St. Patrick’s Day theme), which, given that it was almost 80F at that point (11am start), was alright with me.
