This was the second race of the Run For Your Life's Grand Prix Series. We missed the first one while we were in California for the Big Sur Marathon. It is a series of 5k's, which finish with a 10k and then a 15k. They assign points based on how you do each race, and at the end of the year award some pretty cool prizes. We decided to let Michael run each race to see how he does. They let you throw out your two lowest scores for the year, which is a good thing because we will also be missing the race on July 4th so we can run Peachtree again.
The race was in uptown Charlotte, and I hate parking there, so we drove to a park and ride, then rode the train into Uptown.
