And we’re off!

BreadHoneyRace1

Race: Streetsville’s Bread and Honey Run
Distance(s): 1k fun run, 5k, 15k
Swag: Medal, tech-tee, water bottle, yummy food bars, after-run breakfast

Wonderfully organized by volunteers and staff, the Streetsville Bread and Honey Festival is always a much anticipated event every summer for locals and visitors. It was also my first 5k race of the summer.

The run coincides with the local Bread and Honey Festival that, yes, includes delicious Texas bread, butter and locally produced honey. There are carnival rides, a petting zoo, and beautifully decorated tables from hometown businesses, mom and pop shops, as well as stalls and tables from neighbouring cities. All put together, it is a great family event.

In any case, weather is always a hit or miss the first weekend of June. This was my first time completing the Bread and Honey 5k run and I had a PB of 27:51 (which surprised me as I was on a hiatus from running due to an injury last month). Last year I completed the 15k, so I hope to work back up to the 15k and possibly complete a half-marathon or two for next year.

Next up, Subaru’s try-a-tri in Niagara! ….which will no doubt lead to my decision of completing a full triathlon next year.
