I didn't do too bad at the Kevin Gray Inaugural Father's Day 5k; placing 4th in my age group. Considering I ran 10 miles the night before and played a double-header of softball, I am happy with the results =)
It was a great race through the T-Bones stadium and ending up in the Sporting KC stadium. The first mile was up hill and into the wind but not too terribly bad. The only suggestions I had for changes were to move the "chip-cutters" back away from the finish line a little and maybe have some water bottles closer to the finish. I had to go up a long flight of stairs to get water. I understand it must be difficult to end a race in a nice stadium like that and provide amenities without mucking up the field. They had to shew me out of the leather box seats once as well =)
All in all, it was a great, well organized race and a real treat for Father's day.
