Kraut Run 8k

Oct 4, 2014

Fredericksburg, Texas

Couple months late on this but I need to finish up with races before 2014 ends. This past October I was in Texas and headed to Oktoberfest to drink beer with my good friend Tara, who grew up in Fredericksburg, and I heard there was a race —so of course I signed up!! I also made Tara sign up since she has run it before.


It was a short 8k and I went out to have fun and see how fast I could run. The morning was perfect weather! I fueled with 1 Hammer gel and went to the start, surprised how many runners for a small town race.


The race went thru the lovely FBG on rolling hills. I stayed up near the front pack of boys but they slowly were getting away from me so I hung with the next pack and those guys were getting away from me, so I ran alone until the last couple miles a dude caught up to me and we pushed each other. I stepped on a rock and tweaked my ankle but kept going. I still pushed hard and sprinted, negative splitting to the finish. I was First Female Overall, 7:11 pace and 35:41 time, coming in 15th place out of 203 runners total. Super fun to be first female. I got a pretty rad stein that I carried around the whole day filled with beer!


About a week after the race I found out I made the local paper. woo hoo!
