Second Annual Galveston Sand Crab 5K/10K
The race start time is at 8:30 p.m. this year instead of 9 and the packet pickups are at multiple stations in the days leading up to the race. The big issue last year was that everyone was getting their packets starting at 7 p.m. (because that's when they opened) and it caused a huge line, which further caused a start time of 10 p.m. So, I'm glad they are going to start earlier this year.
It's a fun race, but hot and hard running in the sand. And with a start time of 8:30, I might not have to use my head lamp. Plus, it has free beer at the end of the race. Last year, they ran out when Jodi and I finally made it to the front of the line. However, we were running a 10K and this year, I'm running a 5K. So, I better get my beer!
On a side note, I have been a nazi on my 2 sets of 25 squats, 50 front crunches, 30 side crunches (each side), and 20 situps. I did this yesterday morning and this morning. Both times, I was running late and didn't feel like doing anything. So, I'm glad I forced myself, especially since I didn't run those days. But I'm running tonight with Mal and then off to see some wizard action.
