Beat the Bridge 8K 2017!

This weekend I ran my first ever Beat the Bridge 8K!  It’s a huge race here in Seattle, so I have no idea how it has taken me six years to finally do it.  But now I can check it off my list!

I didn’t actually realize how big of a race it was until we went to packet pickup on Saturday, and I saw the enormous race set up being constructed at Husky Stadium.  It was fun to be there the day before and see the start and finish lines, and to get a sense of what the race would be like.

Lacey picked me up bright and early on race day morning so that we could get there in plenty of time for the start.  Summer weather has arrived in Seattle, and it was HOT even at 7am when we left.  I knew heat was definitely going to be a factor during the run!  I made Casey snap a before pic of us as we headed out the door!
