For the third year in a row we had a small group representing 2 Fat Nerds in the Boston Athletic Association’s 5k the weekend before Marathon Monday. This year, we had 8 runners (Mom, Dad, Dave, Brooks, Gracie, Mark, Emily, and myself), and it was a lot of fun!
The B.A.A. 5k is the first race of the B.A.A. Distance Medley, which includes the 10k in June and the Half Marathon in October. 2 Fat Nerds members Gracie, my father, and myself will be training and running this year’s Distance Medley and we registered several months ago, so we were excited that the 5k was finally here!
There were more runners in Boston than ever this year, and it was great to see everyone outside ready to run before 8am on a beautiful Saturday morning. The sun was bright and smiles were everywhere. There were so many people at the start, the elite finishers were crossing just a couple minutes after everyone cleared the start!
