SPEEDWAY 10K

This race took place at the Texas Motor Speedway where all the big car races are. We drove in and were directed to the parking areas down by the garages.

How cool is this with the track and stands above me!

The race started with a Porsche leading us. We had to go down this hill under the track and then out to the road that runs around the stadium for 5 miles and then back down the hill, through the tunnel and up the hill and back toward the garages to the finish. As I was coming back in I could hear the cars racing on the track and I stopped to get a look as they went roaring past above me.
The weather was perfect for running and I was glad because there was no shade on the course.

These are some of the cars that were racing .



I finished with a 1:22:19 time which was a PR for me for a 10K. I received one of the first place tiles. This was a great race and we'll look forward to running it next year.

This looks like a lot of fun. In March there's a run on the circuit here in Holland too. Thinking about joining it.
