Thanks for all your feedback about where I should go from here!
I’ve decided that I will most likely rejoin the Y… although I might wait until they have a $0 enrollment special. That usually happens in January. In the meantime, I want to sign up for another 5k, because I’ve realize it’s the only way to motivate me to run in this cold weather.
Speaking of cold weather, what do you wear to run in the cold? I”ve been wearing yoga pants and t-shirts, but now that I want to stick with running, I’m considering investing in some real running gear… all you fab runners out there, let’s hear it!
What do you wear to run in the cold winter months??
Here are a couple 5ks I’ve found and am considering…
1. The Reindeer Romp December 11. This 5k is in Sherrills Ford, NC, which is across the lake from where I live. It will most likely be a small race. Pros: there will be visitors from the north pole, I wouldn’t mind a t-shirt that said reindeer romp, and it’s fairly close by! Cons: I’d be running it alone, it’s the same day as my bro’s 30th birthday & about the time my best friend’s baby is due
2. Thunder Road December 11. This 5k would be the polar opposite of The Reindeer Romp… it’s gonna be HUGE. It’s in downtown Charlotte and it’s main focus is on the marathon and 1/2 marathon. Pros: it would be a very exciting race to be a part of, most of the other Charlotte bloggers are running it (the big races, not the 5k ;)), it has an exhibit with free stuff. HAHA. I like free stuff. Cons: it’s the same day as my bro’s 30th birthday & about the time my best friend’s baby is due
3. Jingle Bell Road November 20. This 5k is close to where I live, it raises money for arthritis, there are supposed to be a lot of cute, dressed up kids. Pros: close to where I live, a late start (9am). Cons: It’s SO soon, it’s the day after my best friend’s couples baby shower which would mean no drinking
Hmm…. decisions, decisions…. 🙂
