RFYL Grand Prix series - winner!

This past running season Mason and I ran many races together under the jogging stroller division as part of Run for Your Life's Grand Prix Series.

04.27.13 - CPCC Skyline 5K Run : CPCC Central Campus - RAN
05.17.13 - Right Moves For Youth Twilight 5K Run : Uptown Charlotte - did not run
05.18.13 - Run! Ballantyne 5K/10K# : Ballantyne Corporate Park - RAN
06.08.13 - King Tiger 5K at University City : Run For Your Life – University - did not run
08.24.13 - Yiasou Greek Festival 5K : Holy Trinity Greek Orthodox Cathedral - RAN
09.07.13 - Hog Jog 5K : Uptown Charlotte - RAN
09.21.13 - Showmars Pediatric Hearts 5K : Showmars - Cedar Park - RAN
10.13.13 - The Kasey Kahne Foundation "Five Kahne" 5K : NASCAR Hall of Fame
10.19.13 - Hopebuilders 5K Run/Walk : CMC Main Campus - RAN

Six races ran together using the BOB jogging stroller.  At the end of the running season Run for Your Life hosted an awards banquet.  I wasn't able to attend since it was during a weeknight dinner time, but I did stop by one of their stores to pick up my prize.

I was pretty bummed to discover that my prize for being 1st place in the Female Baby Jogger division was 4 pint glasses.  After so much time and money invested into running their races, I assumed that RFYL would reward their winners with at least a gift card to their store.  Not only did I run numerous of their races in 2013, I also bought new running shoes and gear from their stores.  

I am thankful that I did receive something and was honored at the awards banquet, even though I didn't attend.  I don't think I'll race the entire series again in 2014, but may run some of my favorite races that they sponsor.
