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. 😕

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!

  1. Sorry I missed you. Glad you had a blast despite the freezing rain. I beat my 5K PR as well… anxiously waiting for those numbers to come out! 😀

  2. I totally thought our weather was going to be the same for my race on Saturday, but it wasn’t bad at all. It didn’t start raining until well after the race as over. Here’s hoping this weekend’s 8K weather will be good, too.

  3. WOW. Yeah I definitely signed up for this race and I was super stoked for my first race of the season, but I wimped out. Love the holiday-appropriate raincoat!

  4. You ran right by my house! 🙂 I was so impressed looking out the window watching all the runners out there in such terrible weather… awesome!!

  5. Congrats on the race! I go to Tufts University and I was actually watching the race with a few of my friends. I was so impressed with everyone who ran it! 🙂
