I am super late in getting this race report out. The Gate River Run 15k in Jacksonville happened in March and I see that it is now July...

This year I was seeded into the front of the first wave, with a yellow 3-digit race number, based on the quality of the half marathon performance that I submitted. It was pretty cool to be right up there at the front near the elites.

The River Run is really just an amazing, huge and well-managed event. I finished 284th out of 14918 total finishers (all genders). There was free beer and chocolate milk at the post-race celebration and this year the Publix bananas were even ripe. The weather was perfect for hanging out until the awards ceremony.

Here is a picture from after the finish with some of my Florida Track Club teammates and Gainesville runners who finished near me:
