This past Saturday, we were very proud to have a group of 25 employees participate in the FIfth Third River Bank Run in downtown Grand Rapids.

Participants chose between a 5K, 10K, and 25K race, or a 5K dance/walk, and we were lucky enough to have runners in all four categories. The clear skies and low humidity provided the runners with beautiful racing weather.

This was the first 5K of 2018 for Paul DeBoer, who joined SalesPad this past spring as the Digital Operations Manager.

“I felt good after, but the hills were pretty tough. I usually run around my neighborhood, and it’s pretty flat,” he said after the race.

Maggie Younce, a Sales Engineer at SalesPad, completed the 5K Walk with two of her coworkers, Alysa Callahan and Megan Malfer. This was her first time participating in a 5K, and she joined to give her daughter Penelope (our youngest participant, pictured below) some fresh air and a new experience.

“We didn’t dance or run during the event, but our conversations took us far,” she said after the race. “We made it to the finish line before our jokes made it to the punchline.”

There were refreshments provided at the finish line, such as water, Gatorade, oranges, bagels, and cereal bars. Finish Fest was held at Calder Plaza where participants could see live shots from the finish line, enjoy live music and food catered from Buffalo Wild Wings, and — what a person from Beer City, USA naturally needs after a long run — cold beer!
