Last night, Jeremy and I did the Southern Lights Stroll 5K. Here is the low down on the race.
*Although it rained the entire way up to the race, it stopped and didn't rain for the majority of it.
*I found something that worked with my short hair - 2 samuri ponytails and a sweaty band.
*Eating at Outback after the race with the Andersons and Sudds.
*Going to the Horsepark for the first time ever.
*Going to Southern Lights for the first time ever.
*Realizing I need to start running more to get back in the shape i was again.
*using my new camera that i got for christmas (early)
The Bad :(
*It was cold (40 degrees), windy, and wet from raining beforehand.
*Started raining at the end of the race (my first time running in rain)
*My time (although what do i expect when i stop and take pictures -see The pretty)
*Wearing glasses when it's cold and blowing out warm air that fogs them up making it hard to see.
*Running in the dark so you can't see your Garmin.
*Running in capris (bc you dont have tights or long running pants) when it's wet and having your shoes throw up water on your calves.
*Realizing just how much endurance and speed i have lost since the half due to my injury
*Realizing just how much gaining weight effects you when running.
*trying to take pictures of lights in the dark with a new camera
