Double Trouble race a success

As we posted last week, the Lake Grapevine Runners and Walkers club held their annual Double Trouble 5K/10K yesterday, October 9.  The weather cooperated beautifully and there was a great turnout of runners both young and old.  The unique thing about this race was the start time, which was staggered (8 a.m. for the 5K, 8:50 for the 10K) so that runners could compete in both races.  Two for almost the price of one (entry fee was just $5 more to do both races).  Here are a few pics from just before the start and also the finish line:

Warm-up and stretch – almost gun time:

Bring it on home!

This race was also unique in that each participant was given a bag with the race logo rather than the more traditional T-shirt.  This high quality mesh bag will come in very handy at future race events for the participants.

No race would be complete without post-run water and food and Double Trouble had plenty of both.  Bottled water, bread, bananas, oranges, and cookies were provided to all participants.

All in all a very successful race, and we look forward to next year!
