The run was put on by the local running store, Running Fit . They did a great job! The city of Novi is one of my favorite places and it is always nice to see people out there supporting runners, even if they don't know them. It is such an awesome community to be a part of. Just have to mention, to the lady that was running in just a sports bra...Unless you were experiencing some sort of hot flash, it truly was NOT that warm and I would like to suggest that you go with some sort of shirt when the temp is in the single digits. Just a suggestion...
Post race had some good food from what I hear. People were grubbin'! I am not a past race muncher. I don't run for the food, I don't run for cupcakes, I don't run for medals.I run because I want to run.I run because my body and I finally figured out that we can run!As a matter of fact, I came home and ran the other 1.5 miles of my scheduled training.My legs were not happy with the encore run.It had been over an hour since I finished the 5K and it was still only about 9 degrees out and looked a bit like this... I am entirely over the snow. Seriously.I don't think my toes ever got warm on Sunday.I am so ready for spring to get here!
Oh, and because I am 'results driven', my little (timed) training run ended up like this:27:08 (8:45 pace)Age Group: 18/95Overall: 483/1413
It feels good to know that I could have run harder/faster if I had wanted to.It feels even better to know that I can go out there and just run!
