So sister and I went out Thursday night and did the crazy light run. It was cold but we were wrapped up. I gathered all sorts of Xmas related gear before we set out. Starting wasn’t too bad but we quickly learned there were not a lot of “slower” runners. I hung back so she wouldn’t be alone and also since I’ve been having issues with my knee. Sadly because we were slower we missed all the caroling stops. Half way through we stopped at Stan Hywett for some walking and caroling, then the leaders took a wrong turn so that bought us so time as well. We tried singing on our own, but Becky was just busy breathing. That and for some reason did not know the words to the 12 days of Xmas..
Me: On the 3rd day of xmas my true love gave me to me…
Me: that’s your turn
B: Oh I don’t know it
M: three fench hens..
B: (finishes verse)
M: On the fourth day of xmas my true love gave to me
B: *proudly* FOUR FRENCH HENS
M: No dude we just did french hens
Afterward we had some very yummy and very pricey coffee and I saw a very cute boy and got tongue tied and couldn’t talk….I’ll never get a date! lol
Overall it was a fun lil 4.3 mile run, great turn out for a first year and not much advance warning. And good news? knee only hurt for one day afterward so I might be healing and building strength. Hoping to get some mileage in while on vacation.
Enjoy some pics
