It's Time for Springtime! FeaturedWritten by Mary Maddox
As the Dogwood trees and Azaleas begin to bloom and winter gives way to spring, Tallahassee, FL area runners know this means it is time for Gulf Winds Track Club's (GWTC) 35th annual Springtime 10k/5k/1mi event. This is GWTC’s downtown springtime event, and you shouldn't miss it.
The Springtime 10k/5k are USATF certified courses that begin with a 3/4 mile downhill stretch, cover rolling hills through the beautiful Meyers Park neighborhood and finish flat and fast one half mile from the start area. The 1 miler is mostly downhill beginning and ending in the same place as the Springtime 10k/5k courses.
Time and Place: Saturday March 27, 2010. Tallahassee, FL
Springtime 10k - 8:10 a.m.
Target Copy 1-miler - 7:45 a.m.
Publix 5k fun run/walk - 8:10 a.m.
Race day registration will begin at 6:45 a.m. Race registration and starting line are located downtown in front of the County Courthouse on Monroe Street. Please visit GWTC's website at www.gulfwinds.org to download a registration form for the race. More information about awards and post-race events are also available at the GWTC website.
I've been a running mom for almost two years now. After having my second baby, running gave me a way to focus on myself and lose that baby weight. It has not only made me physically stronger, it has made me emotionally and mentally stronger too. All of these improvements make me a better wife and a better mom!

Thank you Judy for the amazing event! The weather WAS wonderful, and the event very well planned! I thought the medallions and hand towels were an awesome touch for all the finishers:) We hope to bring an even bigger crowd next year! Loved the challenging course...a friend of mine from Blountstown said he threw up three times close to the finish...but he was ALL SMILES when he told me lol!! He had a great time too! WE WILL BE BACK:)!!

Many thanks to all of the runningmoms.org folks who came over for the 35th Annual Springtime 10K & 5K/1-Mile Races! As you all probably already know, the one thing that can make or break your running event is the one thing a race director can't control: The weather! It was beautiful & I'm so glad you decided to come & spend the day in Tallahassee with us Gulf Winders!
