Pursuit of Fun 5k

Gulfport, MS


The Pursuit of Fun 5k, sponsored by the Gulf Coast Running Club, was held at Gulf Islands Water Park in Gulfport, MS.  This was a 3.1 out and back course with plenty of runners at the line.  A personal accomplishment for this race was posting my first official 5k time under 25:00 minutes.  Official finish time was 23:49, a great finish for my first race back after my injury in New Orleans. This was my little sister’s first 5k, unfortunately she was late showing up to the starting line and the rest of the pack had a bit of a head start on her.  After finishing my race I ran back out to catch up with her and finished the course with her.  Following the race all runners were given free, early admission to the water park.  Krystina and I enjoyed a morning of water slides, wave pools, and the lazy river.
