This week I am talking about Hit The Brixx 5k and 10k from September 17, 2016. This race was awesome and left me so full….more on this later.
This race was in Uptown at the Brixx Pizza. This is one of my favorite places to eat cause their food is out of this world. They also have a great selection of beer.
We got to this race early just like we always do. When I say we I mean my wife and kids came also. Of course when we arrived my oldest had to pee. What we did not count on was that the line was out the door for the bathroom and there were no port-johns anywhere as they were late to arrive.
By the time my wife got done in the bathroom the 10k had already started and I missed it as I was suppose to run Bothe the 10k and the 5k back to back. I was not mad but a little disappointed.
So we waited out in Uptown for the 5k to start which was fine cause it gave me a chance to hang with my kids and take some cool photos.
As for the race itself. It was very hilly. There were so many hills but it was a fun course to run. I love running in Charlotte anyways. I push harder and harder and made it through the hills. When I arrived at the finish line I saw my daughter and she wanted me to pick her up. Just like the Charlotte Marathon, I picker her up and carried her with me over the finish line.
Afterwards we fed our faces with unlimited pizza and beer. It gave me the opportunity to try some of the cool local brews. Man are they good.
If you are looking for a fun race and some good pizza and beer then be prepared to Hit The Bixx!
