The 2018 Gasparilla Distance Classic along Bayshore Boulevard went off without a problem. Some 30,000 + runners, walkers, wheelchairs and baby strollers where part of the annual event.
The two-day event was the culmination of nearly a months worth of Gasparilla events that draw hundreds of thousands of spectators to the downtown Tampa area.
It sure was nice meeting all of the runners and Q105 fans that showed up along the race route. Q105 was the official radio station of the Gasparilla Distance Classic and from 7am until 11am on Saturday, I nearly lost my voice cheering on the participants. Maybe next year I’ll try to run in the event.
This is a photo of me and my new friend “Bruno The Sexy Beast”. Yep… that’s his name. What a great dog. I met Bruno out on Bayshore Boulevard at just about sunrise on Saturday. I am really looking forward to next years race.
