This weekend was a long run split up into sections since S is on vacay. Split into 2 races, and I'll tack a little more on tomorrow. Today was a 10K to benefit the massachusetts special olympics. I dressed up for he first time ever for a race!

This race was the smallest I've ever done. No chip timing, no closed roads, no crowd support. I'm definitely not used to races like this. There was a 5k option too, and thats what almost everyone was doing, so the second loop of the course was really lonely. There were only 28 people total running the 10k.
My friend Barbie ran the race too, and I was a little behind her & caught up to her at the 5k. We ran the next 1.5 miles together, until I told her to go ahead. I only saw her & one other girl on the course, and we were in each others sight the entire time. Having to loop through made it a little boring, and it was cold out!

I also wore my new sugoi jacket, and so glad I did! The windchill was crazy! Kevin came too, he ran the 5K

Kevin and I came home to shower, then went out to the HUGE beer/wine store to get some stuff for a beer & wine tasting party we're going to tonight. Kevin picked out a couple of Trappist beers, I got a couple of Cabernets & then we got some fancy cheese to make a nice platter. The party should be a really fun time with a ton of our friends, so I'm really excited.
Next up.... Hot Chocolate 5k tomorrow!
