Running a 5K during lunch

The fitness center team from Reach Fitness put together a really awesome fun run for employees at the Oracle Santa Clara campus during lunchtime on Thursday this week. I signed up to participate and it was indeed a lot of fun. There had to have been at least 50 of us at the 5K. It was great to get out on a relatively cool weather day (for June) and run/race with friends and colleagues from all around the company.

There was even a professional timer for the 5K, and running bibs with timing chips on them.

As someone who has organized lots of team outings and lunches over the years, it must have taken a lot of planning and patience to put together a successful fun run like this. Great job by the fitness center staff pulling off such a great event.
