Race Recap: Riverside Dash 5K

Race Logo

 

This is the 2nd annual Riverside Dash held in Sanford, FL. This was my first run of it. The race had a 15k and a 5k. I choose to run the 5k to continue practicing my 5k race time. This was also my first time in Downtown Sanford. It was really a beautiful run along their lake as the sun was rising.

The events began with the start of the 15k. We watched as the runners took off and lined up…

They had a lot of color options and I picked out the brightest…

Race Recap: Winter Park Road Race
