Photos: Because It Happened!: 2019 Donna 5k at THE PLAYERS, March 2

March 3, 2019:  It was a very pink morning at a very green venue for the 12th edition of the Donna 5k at The PLAYERS, on Saturday, March 2, at the famed TPC Sawgrass course in Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida. With the move to March from May of The PLAYERS Championship in 2019, so too came a rescheduled date of the charity 5k hosted by The Donna Foundation in its ongoing initiative to provide awareness and assistance to those affected by breast cancer. Over the past years, the 5k course has changed somewhat, with different start and finish points near the TPC Sawgrass Clubhouse or behind the 17th Tee area. The course takes participants (run or walk) through the back nine of the spectacular course, past Holes 10 and 11, around several food court sites set up for the tournament, around the 16th Tee and along the fairway, past the renowned 17th Tee and Green, before heading to the cartpath next to the 9th fairway and green, and then making the turn home toward the magnificant clubhouse and the dual finish/start line. For those who watch the tournament on TV, broadcast doesn't capture all of the hills and elevation nuances, and the 5k course tracked those as well (in other words, there's quite a bit of hilly terrain here!).



Photos: Because It Happened! Daytona 5k: Daytona International Speedway, January 26, on Rolex 24 Weekend

January 27, 2019: Before the drivers started their engines at the Rolex 24 at Daytona International Speedway on Saturday, January 26, 2019, a different announcer called for runners to start their engines at the Daytona 5k on the backstretch of the famed track. Around 1400 hearty types braved windy 48°weather ahead of a 7am start time for a chance to step foot on the track and experience those treacherous 30° banked turns on foot.  Clothing options ran the gamut: tank tops and shorts for either the serious runners, or those who just wanted to defy Mother Nature, or those who just didn't look at the forecast (I couldn't tell), to sweatpants and jackets, to yoga pants, headbands, gloves, and knit hats. 

Just before the start of the run, in the pre-sunrise darkness, there were only a few minutes left to try to warm up those quads, hamstrings and calves (video).
