"Racing teaches us to challenge ourselves. It teaches us to push beyond where we thought we could go. It helps us to find out what we are made of. This is what we do. This is what it's all about."

Crystal Run 5k Friday - Arlington VA

It's spring time ... flowers are blooming, An Extra Hour of Daylight, robins chirping and ... the Crystal Run 5k Fridays race series.
So, yes ... the Crystal Run 5k Fridays race series is back!
For the 4th year in a row, every Friday in April at 6:30PM, Pacers Running Stores is putting together one of the most popular and fun 5k races in the metro area!
The course is flat and fast (USATF-certified), it start and finish at 2121 Crystal Drive and runs throughout the downtown city streets of Crystal City, a neighborhood of Arlington.

I love this race, it's always very well organized, it's close to where we live and where I work (literally at walking distance) and, although there are no overall or age group awards, the field of runners is really competitive.
Yesterday we ran the first race (last one will be May 04), it went really well, here the results.

It was nice to meet some familiar faces and to run and chat with them, see you next week !
