Green and Lean 5K

Saturday, June 2 – In all three previous road trips, we had never done a race on the road, so we were on the lookout for one this time.  We got lucky, and found the Green and Lean 5K on the Charleston peninsula to benefit the mission to Keep Charleston Beautiful.  It took place in Brittlebank Park and around The Citadel on the Ashley River.  It was also sunny in the mid-70s with high humidity, so any runner knows that = hot…

It was a really nice, well-run race, that also gave prizes for first dog and first stroller to cross the finish line, so that gives you a good feel for things.  They announced that this year’s race had the most people that they’d ever had register, with 241 finishers.  And, in a first for my running career, I placed first in my age group!  That’s a feat I never come close as one of thousands in NYC races.  In addition to the visual proof with the photo of me accepting my medal, to back up this claim you can see the results HERE.  A nice start to a weekend in Charleston!
