Jingle Jog 2016

Happy Hump Day!!

Well, that wrapped up my last race of the year! It was COLD. 23 degrees and I had to use the port-a-pottie!! Ugh!!

This is me right before the race. I was sure I would freeze to death! 😉

3.7 cold miles later, and here I am!

It really was a fun race. Lots of festive wear. I had my Christmas tule skirt on to begin with, but I figured it would just make me colder. Probably not, but meh. Just wasn't feeling it. I wore the stocking cap that we got! That was so warm and awesome!

I ran it in 33:15. 9:02 minute pace! Not too shabby. I'm really happy with it! I wasn't sure how it would go. I tend to run slower when it's cold out for some darn reason. Ridiculous. I tried to beat a girl to the finish line, that did NOT happen. I passed her, and then I got ran over. 😊 Haha!

It's been really cold here lately. I need to get over it. I even bought fleece lined tights! I need to wear shorts with them next time. I wore two shirts, two hats, and two pairs of gloves!! Still froze.

Here's to 2017!! Hopefully this year goes MUCH better than 2016. Which, it should. I am healthy, everyone in my family is doing better, and I think this year will just be my year because I said so.

I am signed up for three 10k's (The BRIN Series) and I am going to run the Rock 'n Roll Las Vegas Half Marathon in November! My ex-roommate convinced me to sign up for the last one. Although, she didn't have to twist my arm very much!!
