Race Recap: Cooper Young 4 Miler

Last Friday night was the Cooper Young 4 Miler. It's one of my favorite races in Memphis for many reasons. One being that it's on a Friday night so I don't have to wake up at the crack of dawn on a Saturday morning. The second reason is that it probably has the best spectators ever! The course loops through the CY neighborhood and most people have parties in their front yards and yell and cheer the runners on the whole time! Jared's family and my family came and cheered Ashlee and I on from the patio of Celtic Crossing which works well for them because we pass by there twice during the race. i wish I had more race pictures but I haven't mastered running and taking pics at the same time. I did however improve my race time tremendously. I'm shooting for 8 minute miles next year!
