I ran my first 12k Run (7.46 miles). Normally the runs I have completed are 10k or half marathon. I have also ran 5k and full marathons, I prefer 10k and half marathon. This was my first race pushing a stroller. Bob’s Jogging stroller worked great. I loved having my munchkin with me but it was more work and I definitely felt the difference especially when going up hills.
Run Rocklin was a nicely planned event. At the start/finish line there were so many vendors from the area. Vendors ranged from running gear to catering and everything in between. Many food vendors offered free samples which was a plus.
Most importantly this annual sponsors The Matt Redding Foundation. This run is all about community and giving back. The run route goes through a residential area in Rocklin. Residents along the route were outside greeting and cheering on the runners as we went by. I enjoyed running through the neighborhood with my little one and my friend, Tanya (the one who talked me in running a marathon in the past. ?)
