I'm a sucker for any inaugural race...
They offered two different distances for this race. You could do the 5K or you could participate in a 10K relay, which was two loops of the 5k by a team of two. Lil and I thought the relay option was a little weird, so we opted to just do one loop together.That being said, as all inaugural races go, they have some things to work out...but we'll get to that in the end.
You make your way back to the stadium, then you essentially make a huge loop around the stadium -- you run down the shoot where we started, 5k to the left, 10k transition on the right (now the small, funneled shoot makes sense). Instead of where Shamrock finished at the right field gate, you go past that down the road that follows the stadium and enter in the very back of somewhat center field, make a few turns and then enter the warning track in center field. You run for about fifteen yards on the warning track to your finish.

I had every intention of going to Midtown for their park workout, but then the fam asked if we wanted to grab brunch. Who am I to not hang out with my fam? Duh! So, just the four of us grabbed brunch at Cafeteria 15L, J and L opted to stay home and watch their Spurs play! A hearty brunch to replenish our depleted calories, also to get me ready for a day of bridesmaid shopping.

Dope tee, dope team, cool idea. I'll do it again next year, but I hope they re-think the course logistics ;)
