Hangover Run

First, a little superstition to pass along:   Don’t do laundry on New Years Day. You could wash someone right out of the family.

Our washing machine is taped up for “safety” reasons.

Now for the Hangover run.  It was a 5K for Ted and a 10K for me. No great times were logged but it was a super winter day for running. 45 degrees and no wind. YahOOOO!

Shane and I did our 2 mile warm up.

Ted and I left for Barneveld at 9 am.  Race start was 10 am.  It was a very friendly casual run, out and back over rolling terrain.

Registration was in Andees Tavern, a nice large bar in the village of Barneveld. 

We saw several people we knew and had some nice New Year chats.

Ted ran the 5K in 29:16  and beat his last time on Thanksgiving day. Go Ted!

I ran a crappy 10K (not happy AT ALL with my time):  53:16

Splits:

  • 8:03
  • 8:19
  • 8:28
  • 8:33
  • 8:23
  • 8:26

I swear I was NOT the only one running… it just looks that way.

Bad time but GREAT way to start the New Year. Now we are off to visit with family in Syracuse.

Hope you have a great weekend. Time to celebrate all good things that are going to happen this year!
