3rd Annual Wiseman 5K
December 16, 2012
I'll start by saying it looked like this most of Sunday morning:
The minute - no kidding - I got in my car to head to Jennifer's, it started raining harder. And then a little harder. And by the time we left her house at 3:10, it was pouring. Well, this was going to be interesting. And made for a boring blog entry because obviously I was not running with my phone, and therefore no fun course photos.
I'll leave you with these instead, and you can fill in the blanks:
|Jennifer and I, dry, pre-race.|
|Gotta love Christmas dressing up-age!|
|Post-run. Soaked, though you can't totally tell. And thus how the term RAIN-deer came to be.|
|Final place, as of race day - third AG.|
|7-second PR, as I hit stop just after I got through the finish line corral, so guessing 27:12, really.|
|Awesome local race = awesome locally made awards.|
|Personally counting this as a few seconds late but DAMN look at my pace! Speedwork works!|
And then we ran to the car, changed into our (awesomely unexpected) 5K tech tees, blasted the heater and drove home. The end!
Do you dress up for Christmas 5Ks? Ever ran a race in the rain? How'd you do?
