2018 Races: #13 - 'A Christmas Story' 5K!
Great: 35:01 - 38:00
Awesome: 32:00 - 35:00
This was a great race!
I love doing this race!! It’s so fun to see how people dress up and be creative with their race outfits. My dad ran with me again this year, but we also had our friend Mary Jo and my cousins Amie & Shawni. It was cool to share this experience with all of them :)
It was supposed to rain all day, but thankfully the rain held off until early afternoon when the race was over. And it wasn’t as cold as we were expecting either—yes, it was still cold, but not frigid :)
I ran with Mary Jo the whole time, which was fun since this was her first big 5K race. And I haven’t seen her in a while so it was great to catch up!! Also made the race go by faster :) When we finished, we got in line for beer and met up with her mom & sister while waiting for everyone else to finish. We ended up not going in the beer tent but my dad did so we just waited outside while he finished his Christmas Ale—always a good perk of this race ;)
We had to wait way too long for the buses back to Tower City, but overall this was a really fun race like always!!
