2010 Mercedes-Benz Miami Corporate Run

By , April 30, 2010 10:00 pm

That’s the whole group of people from the U.S. Department of the Interior (DOI) that participated in the 2010 Mercedes-Benz Miami Corporate Run. A run for companies to encourage fitness with their employees and friends/families of the employees. I was also signed in for this by Gordon, my supervisor at the USGS.

It’s a 5 kilometer run through the downtown of Miami and in total 20000 people participated. Yeah, really. 20000 people. And that’s a whole lot! So from 6.45pm to until around 9pm, 5 kilometer of street was closed off for cars to have all of the people, including me run those 5 kilometers. Of course, not everyone ran, some walked and others jogged. I did a little bit of both, a little jogging, a little walking, since I’m not that much of an athlete and all. My time was about 50 minutes and 58 seconds. And I jogged the first 2,5 kilometers without stopping, so I’m pretty happy about that.

Afterwards, some people from the DIO department went out to a small bar called Tobacco Road for a beer and something to eat, before all of us went home again. But that was a fun evening! And I got two t-shirts out of it! The official Corporate Run t-shirt, and the red t-shirt from the team. 🙂
