Saturday January 3 was the Resolution Run 5k in Lancaster, KY. The weather forecast all week was calling for heavy rain but warm temps not going to lie I was dreading this all week long! Another negative (for me) going into this race, it stated at 1pm ugghh I am not a middle of the day runner. (the New Year's Day race started at 1:30 pm hmmm) It rained off and on all morning and it was warmer but it was windy so I packed a change of clothes just in case I get soaked.
Some how I arrived really early that is totally not like me at all except for bigger races when I know the bath room line will be long!! I got my registration stuff talked to a couple of people and walked back to my car to put my stuff in there and then it hit me......I forgot my Garmin! WHAT??!! That is not like me at all either!! I don't hardly look at it in races but I have that 'I Just HAVE to HAVE it feeling'. I was trying hard not to panic but I was. Thankfully a runner friend Libby had on two watches and she let me use one, it was just a time keeping watch but it helped me in just knowing I had something on!
|Super Thanks Libby!|
Thankfully the rain held off while we was running but the wind sure didn't. I knew it was going to be a head wind in the beginning and the end of this course which is the worst part as the end is a steady uphill about a quarter mile or more. There was very few people I knew there and no one that was really my pace I knew Larry Vaught our local sports writer for the newspaper was a little slower than he usually is and I stayed with him almost the entire time which also helped me having someone to pace with.
|You can see the wet roads I think you can tell how terrible windy it was with everyone's head down!|
How was Your Weekend? Did you Race? How'd it Go?
Run Happy ;)
