So I did something a little crazy Wednesday. I signed up for a 5k on November 16th. It’s 15 days away. Oh and I just got back to running after 3 months off. Crazy.
So despite being a little nutty I decided to sign up for this race. I have 2 more weeks to train and which will be a total of 3 weeks (I started back up this week). Anyways I’m not running this race for speed or to PR but rather to get out and have fun because it’s The Ugly Sweater Run!
I figured it would be a good way to kick off the holiday season plus it was only $17.70 on Living Social with a discount promo code. I mean really how could I not sign up? Plus I recruited Neil to run it with me since strollers are allowed. Bonus: you also get an Ugly Sweater Run knit hat, stick-on mustache and Two Sam Adams beers (Winter or Boston Lager, or Angry Orchard Hard Cider) <– I am a fan of any race with beer at the end.
So now I need to find ugly sweaters for the three of us, lace my shoes up and get serious about running and get ready for a fun time!
Who else is running holiday races? I am thinking about running another Holiday 5k (sans stroller and sweater) in December but haven’t committed to one yet. I also wish I could run the first night 5k but staying up to midnight on New Years Eve hasn’t happened in many years.
