My first running race took place at the Lindsay Milk Run. This race was the beginning step in marathon journey. I had never run a race before and this race was a great first experience!
The Milk Run is an annual event that has a 5k and a 10k race. I ran the 10k as my first race to get used to running in a race environment. I was fairly nervous before the race which was nice to get out the nerves before the marathon.
I started out fast for the race, but slowed into a steady pace. There were a ton of aid stations on the course, which I was thankful for as it was July! I felt awesome throughout the whole race and enjoyed every bit of the experience!
For a small race, the Lindsay Milk Run has an awesome post race celebration. Once you finish you can get milk. chocolate milk and sometimes ice cream all provide by Kawartha Dairy! I can’t wait to do this race again this year!
