Resolution Race 5K Report

Race prep

LONG overdue report.

In short, the race was cold, wet, miserable...and I LOVED it.

Pre-race. We are freezing. And insane.
We knew the weather would be bad. Cold drizzle and cold wind to begin with, and it only got worse.





By this point in the race, we were soaked. It had started POURING on us just before we got to the halfway point, but no way were we going to quit.


We finished, and weren't last. Actually, we weren't even CLOSE to being last. We ran a lot more during this race than we ever have before. In fact, the weather was so bad people were leaving almost as soon as they finished the race. I don't even think they had the awards ceremony since so many people left so quickly.

After the race. Soaked to the bone and freezing, but proud!
Finishing time was 50:17. Not a record, but not too bad considering the weather.


We got our finisher's champagne flute and headed home for hot showers. 4th annual Resolution Race 5K - done!
