2016 race #2 - Super Run 4-miler

Last weekend was the big game and the atmosphere leading up to the race in Charlotte was electrifying! Facebook reminded me last weekend that 10 years ago I was in Pittsburgh celebrating the Steelers win in Super Bowl XL, so I was excited to be in another city getting ready for a huge game. I won't lie, I jumped on the Carolina Panther bandwagon this year and got a white bib to go with my Steelers black and gold bib from last year. I don't have any Panthers gear, so I wore my closest Panther blue and my blue Christmas lights. My friend, Beth and I decided to run the race together and met up with some of her run group before the race started. There were a ton of people at this race and it was a great atmosphere to kick off a day of Super Bowl celebrations.

  • Mile 1 - 9:29
  • Mile 2 - 9:53
  • Mile 3 - 9:45
  • Mile 4 - 9:49
Official time: 39:39

The race began and ended right at Bank of America stadium where the Panthers play, so there were a ton of people getting pictures with all of the panther statues. This year they added a medal onto the long-sleeve tech shirt and there were several vendors at the post-race party, including OS1st who hosted a compression sleeve exchange - they took a pair of your old compression sleeves and gave you a brand new pair. It was a really fun way to kick off the day and I'm definitely interested in coming back again next year!
