So, this year I finally registered because I really wanted that blanket. I put together my outfit for the race with my Sparkle Skirt along with Balega socks.
I got up early and drove to the packet pick-up in Pentagon City at the Champs Restaurant. I got my super cute blanket along with a packet of Sweethearts. Yes, I was in Diva mode that morning even with the cold temperatures.
I did my 5K and it was cold! I saw these ducks along the way and wondered if they were as cold as I was! They looked frozen! :)
I will have to say that for once I dressed accordingly for the race. I wasn't cold or too warm. I normally under or over dress but I did a great job with my running clothes and layering! I finished slow for me but wasn't trying to run fast as the cold air really hit my lungs hard! I was proud of my finish with running in colder temperatures for a race-a first for me!Balega socks with my blanket! It is really cute and I'm glad that I did this race after wanting to run it for several years now.
Do you have a local race that you always wanted to run? Do you run a race for the swag only? What are your cold weather races like for you? Let me know-maybe I'll learn something from you! Til next time and remember, my journey continues...If you can dream it, you can do it as Walt Disney said!
