Run With the Lions 5K

I’m not one to lie, but I don’t due 5K’s that often.  I was in Savannah for a conference and being the runner I am, I did some race searching and found the Run With the Lions 5K.  It’s a 5K race supporting St. Andrews School about 10 miles outside the Historic District of Savannah.  Oh, by the way, it’s a trail run around the school.

Friday on our lunch break, I hurried over to Fleet Feet Savannah.  Now, I didn’t register online and they were only taking cash or check at registration.  One of the Fleet Feet workers, however, charged my credit card and gave the people doing registration cash- thanks guys!!  I snatched my bib and my shirt and headed over for some more learning at my conference.

Saturday Morning, I headed over to St. Andrews.  The fact I could run in a T-shirt and shorts for the first time since October, was beyond awesome.  After parking about 1/4 mile from the school, I ran over to the start.  Soon enough, we were off and running.  We headed around the baseball field and into the woods.  I forgot about the burn trail runs give you.  That and trying to get footing caused me to slow down.  The fact it rained the night before left the course wet.  After we finished up the first mile, we looped around some more.   There was groups of people cheering, the school mascot and a group of girls asking for high 5s.  The last .1 was on pavement (thankfully).  Finishing time of 33:41.  Second slow race in a row means a fast Cherry Blossom run in a few days, right?

Anyways, good cause, fun little race and being able to run in a t-shirt and shorts was all worth it.  Head over here for results
