Last Race of 2006!



Today was my last race of 2006 - the Happy Zoo Year's 5K Run-Walk!!



With receiving over 8 inches of snow yesterday, I knew that this race wasn't going to be a PR and went into it thinking I would do some running with my walking.


The temperature was about 22 degrees but in the shade it was cooler and the wind chill was about 7 degrees. The path was all within the zoo and made two loops. I don't really care for loops in races, but this one was georgous! The path was cleared as best as they could have, and covered in dirt/sand, but it still has some slick spots and I took my time. I went out too fast and wasn't warmed up at all. I had to do some walking long before I was mentally ready, but I took the time to enjoy the scenery and the animals around me. Overall, I did more running then I set out to do, and it was truly a beautiful sight out there!!

Happy New Year's Everyone! See you next year!

Okay, I am totally jealous!!! We have barely gotten ANY snow this year! :) I'm sure I'll regret saying that when we get dumped on, like, in March or something...

Happy New Year!

It sure looks pretty, but after doing some running in MN on my vacation, I don't envy you running in that cold!
