How Low Can You Go

Santa Shuffle: Fun Times

>> Sunday, December 5, 2010

   This morning I ran the 5K Santa Shuffle.  The temperature was -2C with the wind it felt like -6C. 
On the way to pick up my race kit

The race itself was not bad.  The first 1.5K was all up hill and it was icy, I was cold and not a fan.  After that I started to warm up and kilometer 2-3 was downhill and I loved it.  We turn around at kilometer 3 and headed back uphill for the rest of the race, that was not so easy.

I finished with 33:50 not bad.  For a brief second at the end of the race I thought I was going to throw up because I always push to the max in the last 50 meters.

Tomorrow is my long run 8K.  My friend had the best quote for winter activities:

The is no bad weather, just bad clothing.

so if you are dressed properly, winter is your oyster!

At the beginning
At the end, you can't tell but I am sweating like a mofo.

When I left the snow really started.

All in all a run time.  Next race, Resolution Run, New Year's Eve.  I REALLY want to be under 32 minutes!

Just came home from glow in the dark mini putt, SO FUN!

Well done!

I felt cold just looking at the pictures so for you to be out in it doing a 5k either makes you crazy or inspirational!

Good luck with the 8k!

"There is no bad weather, just bad clothing." This is an excellent quote! Congrats on your race! I'm glad to see that I wasn't the only one running in the cold on Saturday. :)
