Yesterday was the 2018 Chesapeake Bay Bridge 10K! The weather was significantly nicer than last year's drizzling and dreary morning! Too bad that the nice weather and fun atmosphere was ruined by the lack of integrity of the event. This year the medals were supposed to end but #Ironman did not end this set that started in 2014. Also a little disappointed that this year's medal is so similar to last year's. 😕 Since Ironman took over the @acrossthebay10k event, the medals and shirts has not looked as nice. Can you tell by the medals when Ironman took over?
Debating whether to continue this yearly run but prolly will end up continuing as it has become a tradition and the only time pedestrians are allowed on the bridge. But it's a lot of money for a medal and shirt that are lackluster in design. Not to mention the expo isn't as fun to attend the last couple years. Biggest disappointment was since Ironman took over, the unlimited beer bracelet goes to an unnamed charity instead of directly to the firefighters that used to sell the beer bracelets. 😕 So my siblings and I have not participated in the unlimited post-run beer as we appreciated it when we knew the money was going to the local firefighters.
I did get this sweet mug that completely speaks to my soul. Yes, I will run for pizza! 😝🍕 #beatthebridge #beatthebridge2018 #annapolis #annapolismd #baybridges #baybridgemd #baybridgerun #navyacademy #chesapeakebaybridge #10k #acrossthebay10k #medalmonday @ironmantri
