Last Saturday, Michelle and I ran in the Raleigh Skirtchaser Series 5k in downtown Raleigh. The event is part of a national series to promote running skirts for ladies. Its also a good time to run a 5k as its an evening run that starts and finishes at a popular Raleigh pub. There was a street party of sorts under a tent with live music and plenty of free beer from Oskar Blues afterward.
Once I caught Michelle about a mile in, I slapped her on the bum and ran with her to the finish. It was a fun event with plenty of hills to tackle in the evening heat and humidity. She did a great job and finished the 3.1 miles with ease.
While everyone else cooled off, I collected free beer tickets up and got myself a cold six pack of Oskar Blue's Mama's Little Yella Pils. Definitely not as good a beer as their Dale's Pale Ale but the price was right and so was our evening that we finished inside watching the Canes game at Hibernian Irish Pub.
