Great day for the race! There were roughly 2300 people who gathered at Greenlake for the Valentine's Day Love Em or Leave Em 5k. It was the second annual race, but happens to be the largest Valentine's day 5k in the country (so they said).

 Wearing Pink for Valentine's Day

The course was luckily marked off to the public and held on the road (rather than on the inner loop path). This made the course wider and much easier for the crowds to get through. The race was chip timed, so it didn't matter as much that there were TONS of people there. It was fairly well organized, and had fruit, water, doughnuts from Top Pot and other treats and tents waiting for us after the race. Even though this was a rather small race, it was well attended and I would do it again next year.

Also, I felt great running it! I definitely think I can run faster, I just need to work on speed. I didn't actually think that I had run it that fast. Ill take it though :)
