Well, I’ve never done anything like that before! This morning’s 5k felt like an extreme sport at times. Holy wind and rain!
We arrived at the race about 30 minutes before the start time, so we hid out in the T station to stay dry and warm.
A lot of the other runners did the same. It was scary outside!
About 10 minutes before the start of the race, we all headed outside into the monsoon.
The race itself was cold, rainy, and blustery, but somehow I beat my 5k PR! I’m not sure of my offical time quite yet, but the clock time was faster than my personal best. Yay! The weather was absolutely miserable, so I ran my little heart out just so it would be over!
When I finally made it to the bar, I realized that my camera didn’t survive the wet race weather.
But, eventually, my camera dried out!
After a 3-mile race and a few beers, it was definitely time to eat. We ordered a big plate of regular nachos and buffalo chicken nachos to share. I was starving, so I chowed down!
We demolished the nachos!
I’m so glad that I ran the race today! It was such a blast– even with the rain and freezing cold temps!
I just took the most amazing hot shower and put on my warmest PJs. Now, Mal, Murph, and I are heading over to Dave and Marie’s house for dinner and a movie. It sounds like the perfect Sunday night to me!
