Tonight was officially my last “race” of 2014! So incredibly crazy. My friend and I participated at a Jingle Jog at our local university. It was not timed, no numbers but a fun run where you can choose to run 1, 2 or 3 miles. I decided to go for the full 3.1 so I could top off my 5k’s for the year!
The run started at 5pm, which here means it was already dark out. While we had fun antlers they didn’t really stay on for more than 10 seconds so we carried them instead.
I ran the first lap (mile) with my friend and then she told me to go on ahead of her. Even if it was fun and not timed I wanted to try and stay at a lower split for the last two miles and I was pretty happy with how it ended.
After the race they served hot chocolate, cookies & peppermints. My kind of finish line 🙂
All and all it was a fun run. I was sad that we signed up two days too late to get the t-shirts because they were cute long sleeved ones. Oh well, not like I NEEDED another shirt for my collection.
What is your favorite post race treat?
