Ticked off.....

So the whole family ran the monster mash today.  Ds was supposed to run a 1k, I was going to run the 5k and dh the 10k.  They chose to do the kids 1k first at 7:15,  5k at 7:30 and 10k at 815. 

Dh ran the 1k with ds.  Course was not marked.  At all.  Kids were running AMOK.... dh estimated they ran at least a 3k.  Whatever.  No problem, I'm still there at 7:30 cheering son on when blam....they sent off the 5k.  No warning.  There were about 30 of us 5krs watching our kids finish. All of us really thought they were going to delay the start of the 5k.

 O.k.  well we think somehow they will make it right.  They decide they will let the 5krs either do the 5k or the 10k.. The only problem is they won't (their words)  "officially time" us if we choose to do the 5k.  So I last minute decide to do the 10k.  No training. 

They do all of the 5k awards, all of the door prizes, all of the costume award winners.  Then they announce they are having difficulty with the 10k results because of the added 5krs.  What?!

I do the 10k.  I finish around 6th for women. Overall.  My time was 44 minutes flat.  I would have won my age group.  My name is not mentioned ANYWHERE in the results.  So I got no credit.

I know.  I feel like I'm behaving like a toddler but seriously  I feel cheated. 


Ok, deep breath.  Holden (ds)  won overall best kids costume.  He was a pilot.  And really that tops everything.  And I would give anything to see him run his first race....which I did.

I'll just have a strongly worded letter to the race director tomorrow!!!!!!

  • Sooo it wasn't fun?  Why did y'all run it?


  • Sounds very poorly organized.

  • What a mess. I hope DS had fun in spite of it all. I'm sure he looked really cute :)

  • Sorry to hear about the poor organization- is it a race that's been around for a while?  Congrats to your son for winning best costume!
