Race Report: Ellen's Run 5k

Ellen's Run is a great local 5k in Chevy Chase, MD (DC suburb) that benefits Bethesda-Chevy Chase HS programs and local mental health programs.

This was my 3rd year racing it and it always seems to bring a 5k PR...this year didn't dissapoint!

This year, my husband worked hard designing the course and drawing up the maps.  He was out early marking the course.  So proud of him and his hard work!
We brought along our babysitter so our daughter could enjoy the playground, snacks, games and face painting!  This race has some of the best post-race food around.  Thank you Honest Tea...we all enjoyed the post race hydration!  
Then they brought around the Georgetown Cupcakes.  Heaven for this kid!  

At the race, it was announced I placed 3rd in my 30-39 AG.
Jim was 1st in 30-39 AG.
About a week later, I received this in the mail- I was actually 2nd in AG!  Wahoo!  Thanks so much Ellen's Run for a fabulous time.  We will all be back next year!  

Grade: A.  Great local race with a small town feel.  Excellent post race food.  Run in Rock Creek Park at Chevy Chase, MD/DC line.
