The race said that they encourage everyone to wear a costume so I was ready to bring out the tutus again. What better costume than our Minnie Mouse costume that we wore for the Disney Halloween 5K. Here we are as super cute Minnies, oh I should say super cute COLD Minnies.
Yes it was cold. We left the house while looking at the frost on the grass, it was a -3.5C up here in Caledon this morning, very cold!
Most of the race workers were also in costume which made for a very fun atmosphere I was very happy when teh race actually did start so we could get moving and warm up. Here we go as the race starts There we go.....got to love tutu pictures The race is called Haunted Hill because this course starts off with a big downhill and then at teh 2K mark we have to run up a HUGE hill and it then turns onto another BIG hill that has a cemetery on it, hence the "haunted hill" name. It then is pretty flat after the 3.5K mark. I had informed my daughter on the course and told her she could walk up most of the hill, which we did. I felt it was a really nice course, even with the hills and the volunteers were great!
Here we are crossing the finish line together My daughter did a fabulous job especially considering the hills, the cold and her runny nose. The race was chipped but they didn't post chip time, just official time and we were back a bit since I knew we were going to be a bit slower. So our official time was
Pretty good considering I had Marina as my running partner. I will run slow anytime to get the opportunity to run with such a great kid. Here we are with our medals
