Pumkins in the Park Recap (not a detailed race review)
Race day, got downtown pretty quickly and parked without an issue. Sadly couldnt find street parking so had to park at chicago history museum lot. Had some time to meet up with friends, snap some pics and then we were off. Jeremy and I ran together at a 10:00/mile pace. I felt bad as i didn't want to keep him behind but he was coming off an injury so we chatted and the time flew by. I was also happy that my back was doing ok and only around mile 2.5 did i have to break pace b/c I had a huge rock in my shoe. I couldn't handle it anymore which I was happy i stopped b/c it broke skin already.
We crossed the finish line and met up with the crew for some quick dinner. Fun race, fun times!
