Danvers 5K - Danvers, Massachusetts

We arrived in Danvers in the afternoon after visiting Plymouth Rock and the Mayflower II.  This race was an evening race with a race start of 7'ish and very much reminded us of the Bonny Sosa race series in Anchorage.  They were telling us that they hold this race 52 weeks a year rain, snow, or shine.  There was a large turnout for this race and a huge number of 1st time participants.
After all of our walking around New York and Massachusetts, we are pretty sore, so we made sure to do plenty of stretching before this race.

The race began just as the sun was beginning to set.  The open course followed sidewalks down the streets of the neighborhood and the sidewalks had many cracks and roots, which made running in the dark interesting.  I kept telling Hannah that we had to run fast enough to stay in view of people who knew the course because this was also an unmarked course :)  We finished this race with a time of 29:22 and Hannah was the first kiddo to cross the finish line.
Next up - Connecticut!
