By LL in KC
Last Friday, my husband and I ran the Electric Run KC. It was the first time I had done a night race and I was super pumped about my gear (particularly my LED green afro)! However, I wondered how the actual race would be since I had heard mixed reviews about it from friends who had run the race in other cities. But Vanessa Hudgens had raved about it, so it had to be good right?
The race officially started at 9:00 p.m. The late start gave our group time to meet up and grab dinner (and a beer or two) before the race. Prior to the race, we were told that we should arrive around 7:00 p.m. to find adequate parking, etc. We got there at 8:15 p.m. and had no problems. Would have been boring to hang around for 2 hours!
At the start of the race, they were giving out free cans of Rockstar. Wasn’t the biggest fan of the flavor, but still a nice idea.
