IT'S A BIRD?! IT'S A PLANE?! IT'S A WHALE!!!!

Date: 10/10/15

Race Name: Long Beach Aquarium of the Pacific 5K

Location: Long Beach, CA

My favorite picture of the race!

I wasn't planning on running this 5K when I signed up for the Full Marathon. I had a wedding to attend on Friday night so I didn't want to get up early on Saturday...but when Run Racing announced the course would run through the aquarium...that got me thinking!

Was the early wake up call worth it? Yes! I made this a fun 5K to shake out my legs for Sunday's marathon. Overall great views and a finish right after running through the aquarium! To top it off the finisher's medal is sweet!

Check out these pics!

I spy @sharpendurance !!

Nobody can complain about this beauty! Yes...this was earned by running a 5K!
