Hi everyone California Kiley here with another 5k race as a part of my Summer Fun Run Series! This was an inaugural 5k held in Mission Viejo California at Saddleback College. The race named the Vets 5k seemed simple enough so I agreed to add it in to my series. Parking was so easy and super close to the start and finish line. Walking up the race was an easy check in and organized. One of the things I noticed was the race shirt you received with your bib had a special place that you were able to write in who were running in honor of which I thought was such a great touch to making the race shirt more than just a one you would throw in the race shirt pile.

After running the Big Sur Marathon I have a whole new view on hills and inclines and I actually enjoyed the challenge. This was amazing on a race level seeing so many military vets out supporting the race and the cause.

The kids race was really something special as it was the kids “ruck pack” race. Where the kids get to carry the military backpacks around some of the track. Standing around seeing some of the parents actually putting on the packs and trying them out made me think this could be a subdivision next year as I seen as least 2 guys in full gear and packs running the 5k.

For a first time race this was run incredible well and I would defiantly love to be back next year. Thanks so much Vets 5k for having me out!
