Race 1 of 40 - Commitment Day 5k

I have to backtrack a bit to get us started. This was a 5k put on by Lifetime Fitness - the first year for this event! I ran with my friend, Ashleigh. We're doing several runs together this year. :)

This was a very cool race, we started on the field at Ford Field!! I'm more a Tigers' fan than Lions', so I don't get to Ford Field very often. I like it!!! The route went out the tunnel, by Comerica Park, down to Cobo/JLA and back. Very cool!! I love running in downtown Detroit.

Another first - this was my very first run with my new Garmin that Mom and Dad got for me for Christmas. And I'm not sure if there's a learning curve with those or not, but my Garmin recorded this race as 3.26 miles? I know there was a last minute route change - I'm not about to lose any sleep over it - yet.

Something different that we got at the finish was a 2013 fitness journal. That's going to come in handy for this little project!! I'm always looking for races that have something other than just a T-shirt that I'll never wear again. The ultimate swag is a finishers' medal. Pint glasses are fun too.
