I’m going to stuff my face

Because i ran a 5k today.
And not just any 5k.  A 5k in 17 degree weather.  With snow.

Seventeen degrees.

(Because I know I’ll get asked:  I wore a compression shirt, a long sleeved shirt, a vest, gloves, capri running tights, and sweat pants.  The sweat pants are ugly as sin, but they were $5 at Target.  And now that I own sweat pants I’m going to wear them all the time.  I’m married, I can let myself go.)
This is the race my brothers stalked Sarah Palin at last year.   This year instead of Alaska’s former governor, we got Alaska’s weather.

Hot drinks were a must

Husband + Me + Baby Brother + one of my older brothers + sis-in-law all did it.

We’re champs.
We were totallllly excited
See all the other crazy people?
Post run, Baby Brother’s water looked like this
That’s ice on the sides.  Yikes.

But no one got frostbite and the clock said 37 minutes when the husband and I finished (no chip time, sadly.  The start was supahhh slow).  So we’re winners

And now, it’s 1:00, and I’ve only had one drink.  I’ve got some catching up to do.

Happy Thanksgiving!

    You are a total champ!! There was a forecast of rain here during the Turkey Trot and I opted out. Now, I feel guilty seeing what you had to run in!! Good job girl!
