The Green Girl cheered on the Sole Runners as they did the Run Like It's Recess 5k today at El Dorado East Regional Park and ran for cupcakes.
Run Like It's Recess featured a 5k run/walk, 1k kids run/walk, and 50-yard Toddler Run. The race benefited a local elementary school, Newcomb Academy.
The 'cupcake' portion was not actually an official part of the race but a couple of the Sole Runners, Barb and Larry, baked a few batches of cupcakes for all the Sole Runners to eat at the Finish Line.
Since the Sole Runners were running for cupcakes, they all pinned 'Will run 4 cupcakes' signs on their backs.
It was a beautiful day at El Dorado Park and the weather was perfect for a race.
The event was well organized and the volunteers were cheerful and energetic. Newcomb cheerleaders worked the aid stations and handed out cups of water.
After everyone had completed the 5k, we headed over to cheer on the junior Sole Runners in the 1k kids run/walk.
Suffice to say, everyone did their very best to Run Like It's Recess today.
