On Sunday Hannah and I ran the Lake Union 10k. She picked this race because Portage Bay Cafe was serving breakfast after, and we both love their breakfast.
We arrived at 6:45 and got free street parking. We picked up our bibs, and shirts. They only had 1 womans medium left. They were running small and many people had sized up, they should have t-shirt exchanges after the race.
The race started on time and is a nice loop up to Fremont and around the lake. There were 2 water stops on the course and a few steep hills at the end. I finished 53:53, 4th in my age group. I was about a minute off my PR from my last 10k, 2 years ago. Hannah did great for her longest run ever!
Portage Bay did a great job with breakfast. It was french toast with their breakfast bar of fresh berries, butter, whipped cream, maple syrup and orange juice. Marley Coffee, one of my favorites, had a booth set up with coffee samples.
It was a great race, one I would probably do again.
On a sad note, I needed a headlamp this morning on my run.
