alright Irish 5K Pawtucket, RI (day 6) 3.11 mi 00:33 10:44 pace

This has got to be the least scenic race I've ever done. Pawtucket is a shithole. The downtown start area by Slater Mill is pretty then the rest of the run is most around ugly, dirty industrial building and abandoned railroad tracks. Plus the last mile smelled vaguely, but persistently, like garbage and sewerage which turned my stomach.

This is the 1st in a 3 race 5K Tour de Patrick series. Dan M. and I haven't been keeping up our running this winter, so we ran this one just for fun. Despite the scenery, we had a good time together. And my back feel a thousand times better today so that was a plus.

    Kinda like the New Bedford Half Marathon?! That course lacked scenery but made up for it with 8 a.m. drunks screaming obscenities at the runners once we hit downtown. Nowhere else can you find that level of hospitality. Nice job on the 5k.

    @Anne a lot reminded me of New Bedford if it were more run down.

    Agreed!! The piles of garbage around those warehouses weren't exactly inspiring....
