Last Saturday morning, I woke up at 6:00am and checked the weather and the wind chill was 20-something degrees and we still had gray skies and the remnants of the winter precipitation. I was signed up to go walk/jog a 5K race called the Jingle Bell Run and I was seriously questioning my sanity.
But, after checking the radar several times and consulting with my advising team (my sister and my mom), I decided to go ahead and bundle up and go to the race. I didn't want to disappoint my friend who had said she was still planning to go.
I didn't want to get there too early and have to wait in the cold for the race to start, so I timed it pretty well and found Adriana and her family and we decided to make the best of it. There wasn't as large a crowd as I'm sure were registered, but there were plenty of other
Well, the race got underway and Adriana each found our pace and I was thankful that I had added some jogging to my training so that I could go a little faster and get finished a little sooner. I'm not sure what my official time was, but according to my timer, I am pretty sure I finished under my normal time of walking a 5K, so that was my goal!
And afterward, I had a cute t-shirt and a Venti Peppermint Mocha to reward myself!
