This past weekend, my husband and I ran a local 5K – the Vinings Downhill (you might have read about it in last week’s Weekend Guide.)
Honestly, the race didn’t go as well as I’d planned. For a course that’s advertised as downhill, there seemed to be plenty of uphill. Couple that with the fact that I haven’t been running much this summer and, well, my time wasn’t what I wanted.
I’ve run a lot of races. The majority of them have some sort of goodie bag at the end. In almost all cases, runners receive a promotional t-shirt, but most races give you other promotional products as well. Off the top of my head, I know I’ve received the following:
Crossing the finish line is the best part of the race, but seeing what sort of products you receive after is the icing on the cake. And with all that icing, it’s a good thing I have a new toothbrush.
