Fun Run Weekend

Wow, these weeks are going fast! I have 7 days of school left (crazy, right?!) and I've been busy with end of the year activities, summer plans, and looking ahead to next year.
This weekend I took a break from it all and took part in my first Fun Run--the Cincinnati Beer Run--with my friends Kristen and Liz.
Since we were running for beer, it only seemed fitting that we dress the part--frat party that is. Neon tanks and fanny packs.
The run was not quite a 5k at 2.5 miles and had a beer tasting station every .5 mile. We sampled Wiedemann's, Shock Top Lemon Shandy, Woodchuck, and Goose Island 312. At the end of the race you were able to choose 1 of the 4 and get it in a special 16 oz. glass.
The weather was a bit cloudy and breezy, but the rain held off which was perfect! We had a blast running, sampling, dancing, and sampling some more.
 
The race was all said and done by about 10:45 AM so we had the whole day to spend hanging out in Newport/Downtown Cincy. The reds were in town which made the atmosphere so much more fun!
Fun Run, Success! Liz, Kristen, and I have already declared this to be an annual event for us!

What Fun Runs have you participated in before?
