After looking back over the 5K events I attended in 2011 The Causeway Battleship Run was my favorite as far as the route. I loved the early morning line up and the fog that covered the water.
The race started off just in front of the Battleship and we took off to head towards the Causeway Bridge. One lane was closed but the traffic still drove beside you. I must say that running with traffic helps me run my best pace. I was very impressed with the Mobile Police Department as they made sure all runners were well protected.

A few weeks before running this one I started training and adding hills to my weekly program and was I ever thankful I did!!! The hill on the bridge was really something and as soon finished and went for a long stretch Eastbound it was time to turn around and go back Westbound.
The view was great with the water and the sun coming up over it. On the way back the Battleship was amazing!
And a very special thank you to April who helped me run my best 5K. I found her in the crowd while running and paced myself with her for the complete race. Afterwards I told my husband I had to find the girl that I paced myself with so I could tell her "great race!" When running its always a great race when you can find just that right person, you push them and they push you! Thanks April!!!!
