On Sunday I ran the Rain Run as part of my marathon training. I ran this race in 2014 and knew it was flat. I arrived about 8:15 for a 9 am start. Quickly got my bib and waited in the car. It was about 45 and cloudy, perfect running weather.
This was my first race with my Oiselle singlet. I joined the team in October in my never ending quest to find more running buddies, the women I meet at this race we super supportive and friendly. I love Oiselle roga shorts and capris.
The race started on time and we headed out on the Sammamish River trail. There were only 3 water stops and I wish I had carried water. It got a little warm the few times the sun came out. I finished in 1:57:30 a solid sub-2 which I am very happy about.
The post race food was trail mix, pretzels, halos, bananas and cupcakes. One of the best things about this race is the different swag. Last time I ran it we got an umbrella, this year it’s an awesome blanket and a metal.
Great burger for lunch after the race!
