Run on an Island – Alameda Does Holiday Kick-Offs Right

This past Saturday was the Alameda Holiday Kick-Off 5k, benefitting the Multiple Myeloma Foundation (in honor and memory of the RD’s father).

There was an impressive showing from OTC and ETPA (Elite Triathlon Performance America) at the race!

I made the mistake of thinking a burrito would be a fantastic dinner choice the night before. Spoiler alert: it was a great dinner, it was not a great choice for the night before a race.

The race went off without a hitch. It is a small-town 5k – easy parking, easy logistics, and awesome people. The course would be perfect for a PR – assuming no burritos – and there were some fast racers out there. Here are the results – the winner went a blazing 16:42 – and a member of Oakland Triathlon Club came in 3rd with a 20:34! Everyone was thrilled to be there and excited to race.

I love boxers. I love boxers far more than I love (hate) running.
