Race Review: Dallas Oncor Mayor's 5k Race 2015


written by runnergirl training

 
The Dallas Oncor Mayor’s 5k Race is a run that precedes the Dallas Marathon by one day and is part of the race weekend festivities. For runners who have run the Dallas YMCA Turkey Trot you will recognize the familiar course.  There are a few gradual inclines (read baby hills) in the downtown area as the race begins. After the race makes the turn around point runners catch a great view of the Dallas skyline.

The race was not overly crowded as the Dallas YMCA Turkey Trot has become in recent years. This race draws a significant population from elementary schools and therefor has children haphazardly bobbing in and out of the running throng. If you are a runner looking to PR keep in mind this race has more children than any other race I have participated in the Dallas area. I encourage kids to be active as much as the next person, however serious runners may see this race aspect as a potential drawback. If you are looking for a race to do with your kids though this is the ideal one for you!

All in all this is a decent race. I personally would probably pass due to the maneuverability through crowds of kids stopping, starting, moving chaotically is too distracting for me. But it is less crowded than the Dallas YMCA Turkey Trot so it gets a plus for that reason!

The Natural Tanning and Body Oil is a lightweight moisturizer and will bring a tan when skin is in the sun. The Cacaco Tanning Oil gives an instant light bronze look even without sun exposure. If using them I the sun please remember skin protection with SPF lotion.
I personally choose not to expose my skin to direct sun. In 2013 I lost my mom to melanoma skin cancer. It is very aggressive and does horrible things to the body. I use these products without direct sun exposure, to moisturize, give a light glow to my skin and help my skin to be healthy with a flawless …
