Race #3 – Hit the Brixx 5k – Charlotte NC – 09/27/08

(Originally posted 11/05/08)

Part of the Run for Your Life Grand Prix Series, the Hit the Brixx race was top notch all the way. The Brixx Pizza buffet was free for all runners and everything was great. I placed 3rd in my age group in the 5k and the medals were really nice as well. It was a little rainy throughout the 10k race but when the 5k started a half hour or so later it had stopped raining and it was pretty dry as we ran through a scenic route in downtown Charlotte.
The one small drawback was that we had to pay several bucks to park in downtown Charlotte in one of the private parking lots, but I guess that’s to be expected downtown.
