Tag Archives: Froyo 5K

Froyo Anyone?

A few of you may have gathered, but I love Froyo. What a delicious and slightly lower calorie way to enjoy a sweet treat. One day while perusing Facebook, an ad popped up. For the first time ever, I was actually interested. It was for the most glorious 5K I had ever heard of: Froyo 5K. That’s right, run 3.1 miles and receive the greatness that is frozen yogurt at the finish. Provided by none other than our wonderful west coast chain, Yogurtland.

I saw it the Tuesday before the Irvine event and I registered for it immediately. One, I get froyo at the finish line (#nomnom). Two, look at that spiffy swirly medal! Three, only a 5K! Then when they announced the flavor we would receive, I knew it was meant to be. Birthday cake batter, my all time favorite Yogurtland flavor. Yes, I will be there, please and thank you. Who wouldn’t be excited for the most awesome 5K to ever be created?! Ok fine, the most perfect 5K ever for me.

What a blast! And I thoroughly enjoyed my reward. Pretty well organized, very quick and easy check in process, and pretty neat swag. They gave me the sunglasses I am wearing in the picture, as well as some other neat stuff including a Yogurtland coupon (SQUEE!). My average pace was pretty fantastic and is one of the times I mentioned in my previous post. Average of 12:39 per mile. My second my best ever time! Races sure get my adrenaline flowing!

All in all, a very splendidly sweet experience. I highly recommend this race for any and all froyo lovers.

As usual, follow along or work with me on MyFitnessPal or RunKeeper.
