    I signed up to run the Half marathon at the Hippity Hop. Morning of the race I got dropped off at the wrong location. And I found out the race was 3 miles away from where I was standing. My ride was long gone. So, what’s a runner to do? Run to the starting line of course! By the time I got to the right location, the Half was already 30 minutes in progress. The 10k shotgun went off 10 minutes prior to my arrival and the 5K runners were getting ready to take off. So, once again, what’s a runner to do? I choose the middle of the road answer and ran the 10K. To my surprise, I crossed the finish line at a decent time and got placed third in my age group. My first race award ever! Hip Hip, Hooray! The race was a lot of fun. There was a decent size group of runners present, the weather was heavenly and the atmosphere was friendly. Runners had to share the road with non-runners (which I don’t really like). But it’s definitely on my list for next year and I intend to run the Half this time (now that I know where the starting line is located).

    this was my second year doing this race and was awesome. This course is hilly and I’ve done it a few times but haven’t been able to “conquer it. However, the staff makes it enjoyable. SLR events always have enough water stations and volunteers cheering up. Everything is well organized and runs smoothly at their events. My favorite local running company!
