Just like our last two races this summer – Melon Dash was HOT! But we’ve now lived through yet another scorcher and got some more miles in for the week!
We arrived in downtown McKinney with about 40 minutes to spare and neither of us had really looked at the details of the race. Once we parked we didn’t even know where to go. Good thing there were some fellow racers making there way to the starting line. When heard the warning of only five minutes left until the race would begin we made our way to line up. Then all of a sudden Beth feels someone grab her booty. Such friendly people at this race! Or really a couple of friends who are also runners had spotted us – Carrie and Katie! So fun to see them out there and we both loved their cheers for us when we were all out on the course.
The course for the 5k was pretty flat the whole way and was an out and back route. Overall it was a good race put on by Run On!, but if we had one complaint it was a lack of cold water at the finish. Grateful for the water at the end just would have been awesome if it had been cold! Unfortunately we did not get to stay for the seed spitting contest after the race maybe next year’s race we can!
