A Snowy Snowflake Shuffle

The Snowflake Shuffle 5K lived up to it's name yesterday!  The event started at 9:30 AM, with a temperature of 5 degrees F, and small snowflakes filling the air. I can imagine how cool all the festive, costumed runners would look from above.  *Think GIANT snow globe!*

At least the weather had improved from my last post, and there was no question as to whether the event would be held.  However, the course was not the fastest, as there was a fresh layer of snow on the ground causing difficulty with traction and footing.  I looked at the event as more of a casual run, and knew I wouldn't be setting any PRs today!  A relaxed run was just what was needed to take in the beautiful Minnesota morning and creative costumes.  My official time was 31:28. The 3rd place AG award was 28 minutes and some odd seconds. I guess others struggled a bit with running conditions also. 

Jen and I excited to finally RUN in our ugly sweaters!

This race wraps up my 2013 season!  Wow, what a ride it has been with lots of milestones and learning experiences.  Stay tuned for my goals for 2014!
