Ten 5ks in 24 hours?? They say, “What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger.” I don’t know about that, but “what doesn’t kill you” definitely gives you a great story to tell! And the Death By 5k Challenge certainly did not disappoint in that regard. The challenge to run a 5k every 2.5 hours across a 24-hour period is one I will NEVER forget!! It was truly a unique experience; read on for a glimpse inside how it all went down.
We splashed. We dashed. We had a SOAKING WET good time in Brookhaven, MS!! I came “locked and loaded” and was drenched by the time I left. (Mostly because I started a water gun fight, buuuuutttttt, none the less!) This race was advertised as “the wettest 5k of the year,” and that promise was definitely fulfilled. 🙂
I can’t think of a better way to spend a portion of Memorial Day Weekend than by participating in a 5k to honor the men and women who paid the ultimate price for our freedom. In its second year, the Run to Remember offered a 10k, 5k and 1 Mile Kids’ Fun Run. Defining Moments Events selected the Wounded Warrior Project as their charity of choice.
