Not going to lie, I had a bit too much to drink last night so I didn't intend for my run to go well today. I was actually impressed with how well I was able to do given the circumstances!
I put on my trusty "Christmas race outfit" and took a few photos with my bib before I headed out.
It was a beautiful day for a run - cool but not cold and very sunny. I have been pretty disappointed that we are not going to have a white Christmas, but to be honest the weather is PERFECT for a run. I am looking forward to being able to run in the snow, but for today I will be thankful for unseasonable weather.
As per usual I just chose a route through my neighborhood. I would love to find a new trail to run, but I wasn't feeling adventurous today. I have been very sore lately from all the running I have been doing but I was determined to run as effectively as I could today. I ended up finishing up 3.11 miles in 24:42. About a minute slower than my 5k PR, but I was okay with that!
The best part of my race - I had negative splits! I have been struggling with that as of late, so it was awesome to see those again!
Last but not least,
