The race started about 20 minutes late which wasn't surprising since people had to get there after work on a Friday night. The corral was huge with no assignments or anything. I think we started running around 8 PM and were in wave 6 - so some people were already done when we started, but others still hadn't started yet when we finished. I'm guessing there was about 8,000 people there?
The race is billed as "not a race, so much as an experience" but it is called The Electric Run so I still planned on running the whole time (believe it or not some of you mean walkers - I can experience plenty while running, thank you). But it was really congested with the majority of people walking so we spent the whole race dodging walkers and saying sorry.

It had rained most of the day and there were definitely some slippery spots that weren't lit. And probably the biggest downer was running the last stretch through a hangar or some type of hall, I'm not quite sure, that was tiled so incredibly slippery. There was no sprint to the finish in this race.
|Donny didn't actually run because he has a thing against paying to run. If you want to sign up for his marathon though, he says it's only $5|
All in all it was a lot of fun though. Mostly because I was with fun people.
I might do it again if other people were excited about doing it, but I might be more likely to find a new "experience run."
I had an 8 mile run on the docket for this morning but I'm not sure what happened. I think it was a combination of a late night, Aunt Flo coming to visit any day now, and being a little dehydrated but I hit the wall HARD around mile 6 of the run. The route I created had me stopping at my gym to get water, and do 2 quick miles on the treadmill. But, there was a line of people waiting, so stopping for 10 minutes and then pushing myself too hard on the treadmill to try to make up for lost time, made the second half of the run feel miserable. I actually ended up cutting out the last mile because I was passing near my street and I wasn't feeling good.
I went to brunch with my parents after and got back to their house and fell asleep hard for a good hour.
Well I actually stopped at the .99 Cent store first and got some of these bad boys:

Any suggestions for fun runs to mix into my
I'm thinking about doing a Mud Run or Tough Mudder or something like that...
