Resolution Run Recap

1 Jan

This morning was the Resolution Run! It has now been deemed our “annual event” and this year our kick off to the January challenge!

I wanted to get there early to get a parking stall,  and to avoid the parking dilemma that we had last year! I also warned Jacinda and she got there just before we did.  Even with 45 minutes before the race, parking was becoming very limited. Tina was a genius and took the train! !

Hanging out in the play place at the YMCA!

As you can see, there is a SEA of blue going on here. Tina and I planned not to wear our new jackets! Last year it was a mess trying to locate each other!

Jacinda and I met up with Tina in the line up. She somehow spotted us and we ran over to meet her. It was weird, I was looking for the bright pink shirt she had on…and she spotted US?!

It was quite sunny outside…hence the squinting!

After about 6-10 minutes of shuffling through the bottle neck of people we were finally free!

…Failed on action race shots here….

..Now to the finish! Here is Tina coming across the finish line, she was looking at either Jacinda or Ivan, I can’t remember. She got stuck at a road and had to wait for passing cars, that is why she fell behind!

We were happy to be done!

Another successful race!! It was not timed, but I would say an average for us 3 was  33 minutes!

Hope everyone had a great day today!!

      Thanks! It was amazing!! We could not have asked for more perfect weather…maybe for less ice on the street, but 0 degrees and sunny was so perfect!
      It looks like you had a great run today as well in similar conditions!
      I raise a glass to you sir *to a great year full of 5ks, 10ks, half and full marathons*
