Today was the Jingle Bell 5K in our town. It is also our anniversary! Six wonderful years of marriage!
Today’s race day was a wet and chilly one. It was about 44 degrees with a cold light rain and a slight breeze. The rain made it feel colder. I didn’t dress correctly and went with capri tights and a short sleeved shirt. Definitely should have worn a long sleeved shirt or arm warmers. My arms were frozen red by the end.
We lined up and had to wait awhile for the start. The race course was changed from previous years because it was a different part of town. The course was mostly flat with some slight inclines mixed in. We tried to watch our step as we a couple times where there were train tracks in the road going out and back. Otherwise a great course!
Rob and I both PRed! I got 22:25 and Rob got 22:00!!
Afterward we stood in the the line out in the rain that we thought was to get into the hotel instead it was the food line, after ditching that we made our way to the hotel ballroom.
Us after the race, all wet and cold.

F 30-34: 2/69
