We had so much fun the other evening running a fun 5K through SAFECO Field in Seattle benefiting Mariner's Care and their Refuse to Abuse charity! I participated in this fun event last year but my daughter wasn't able to run last year because of age restrictions. This year they changed the policy on age of children and made it possible for any children to run as long as they could finish "under their own power". Makenna and I headed down for this fun evening race in our matching Sparkle Athletic skirts!
We arrived and took advantage of the FREE parking for running participants in the Mariner's official parking garage. Made our way to the Bib pick up, got our bibs and bags quickly and then headed back to the van to dump our loot. We quickly attached our race bibs... got our stuff together and made our way back to the start line to find some friends who were also there to participate.
Makenna got #888 - She said it was because she is 8 years old!
I call that LUCKY! What a fun number! (and she is adorable!)
The Medals were so much fun... little baseballs!
There are not a lot of races that can measure up to the "fun setting" (except for runDisney but that is another story)! This race took us through the entire park and even across the bridges onto the top two levels of the parking garage. So much fun to run through the Suite hallways and then down to access tunnels that the players use! Then the finish took us out onto the actual field and the final steps are from Home plate to about 3rd base! Access to the Medals and the after race treats was up through the Pitching area.
So much fun! I loved doing this race again and doubly loved it because my daughter could do it with me! Loved it!
