Who is going to tomorrow night’s Boca Raton 2012 Holiday Mile?! It’s a very cool and unique event – involving just that, a straight mile race on the streets of Boca Raton. It takes place just before the Holiday parade down Federal Highway in front of thousands of people (fans?)!
I participated last year and it was definitely an experience. Usually, road races are 5Ks so to get out of the gate in what felt like an all out sprint and run down the streets of Boca was an experience! And I also quickly realized how terrible I am at judging distance. I mistakenly did not take a minute to check out the course…and as a result assumed the finish was nearly 400 meters before it actually was! Wow, what a painful mistake!
Here are some pictures of last year’s event. I ran it with my former high school cross country team and close friend Angela Morando Singer and her husband Phillipe Singer. They were in from France!
Let me know if you run tomorrow night! And send me your pictures if you do!
