Saturday morning, Batch and I ran our neighborhood school’s first annual fun run. It’s a fundraiser for the school and since it was about .25 from our house, a no brainer that we would enter. They really emphasized the “fun” part of the run and didn’t have any prizes or official timing. It was fine with us since we were racing again on Sunday and just planning to “cruise” for the 5K.
Christmas socks and a Santa hat? Don’t mind if I do! (BTW, reflective running gear also reflects camera flashes.)
Thanks for Meghann for the heads up on these socks at Target for $5.
I loved that they really got the kids in the school involved in the race:
The surprise of the day?
I WON the female division of the race (and got to “high 5” the Chick-Fil-A cow)!! No prizes, no problem, I’ll just take this water bottle. Although it wasn’t a serious race, it was still fun to cross the finish line first. We both got nice shiny new 5K PR’s too- not too shabby for “not intending to race.” I know we could both go faster, but we were saving our legs for Sunday’s 30K. More on that one later…
TOTAL: 5K (3.13 miles per Garmin)/22:59/7:21 pace
