This week I am talking about the famous Yiasou Greek Festival 5k. This race is part of the six pack series that Run For Your Life sponsors. Its one of the six medals I got last year. The food is as good as the race. It also happens to be the latest 5k in Charlotte.
That morning I found my way to the race with the usual signs of a contestant. I had to pee like I do with all races and like always, you have to wait in line. The lines for the bathroom are always long at these races. I think it is due to the fact that they sell out fast.
After using the bathroom and chilling before the race, it was time to line up and get going.
The race was run and the course was fairly easy. I remember all the cars parked in the street and how some people were running into them as they were trying to pass people.
The race was short but it was a 5k so what do you expect. Once I crossed the finish line I got my medal and had a beer under a tree. I stayed a while and ate some really good greek food before heading home.
If anyone is looking for a simple, flat, and fun 5k in Charlotte then this race is for you. It is nothing fancy but a lot of fun.
Happy Monday! Lets get this week!
