The Three Amigos. That's not a fake background. It's Utah.
Most of the racers opted to wear the technical t-shirt they gave us. I stand out in black on the left side of the photo below.
You may notice a few runners wearing Mexican wrestling masks.
The course was a little short of 5K, so my time was better than usual: 19:39. Good enough for 8th place if you don't count the bandit runner who came in 5th. We covered trails and surface streets in the Riverwoods area of Provo.
Coming into the finish line
It shouldn't come as a surprise that none of the top 10 finishers were wearing the race t-shirt. You might as well be wearing a sign that reads "I got forced into this race and haven't been training".
Along with the chips & salsa, fruit, and tres leches, they also had margaritas. Virgin of course.
I placed first in the 30-39 age group, scoring a pair of VIP passes to the Hale Theater in addition to the 2 tickets to see To Kill A Mockingbird that everyone got in their goodie bag. Rubio's was a sponsor, and I got coupons for 4 free tacos as well.
Like I said, great race from start to finish. I'd also like to give a shout out to Ashley Crist for taking some cool shots during the race. These photos all came from her site.
