Honda Grand Prix 5K
The Honda Grand Prix track is put up throughout the streets of downtown St Pete. We run where the cars race. It's a neat and different experience. This year was thankfully cooler and less humid than last year.
Still sweaty, we went to dinner afterward at a St Pete staple, Harvey's. A friend we saw at the race joined us, hubby stopped bathroom rebuild project to come, and a friend from Orlando was on her way to stay with us for the weekend, so she also came. I ate way too many onion rings, but they were oh-so-good. What is it about greasy food after a race? I tried their chicken walnut salad on a croissant, as did the other girls, and that was delicious. We almost did Yogurtology (LOVE that place), but it was so late we all decided to head home.
No races again until the Claw Run in April. Then no more until summer ends. I'm actually looking forward to the hiatus. Not from running but from racing. I'm keeping up with my goals from the last post, so I'll be running regularly all summer. That will probably be a good time to share old running tales of years past.
