As race #2 in the TC Summit MNy Challenge, my sister and I ran the Hot Dash 5k this weekend. While the temperature was 30 degrees higher than the last race we did together, it was still not wonderful. I was WAY under-dressed! I wish I would have worn a long-sleeve base and a hat. But anyway, we did it, cold and all.

Technically I had 4 easy miles on the schedule today, so we decided not to run all out. While we technically didn’t give it all, we gave quite a bit! In fact we had some awesome, solid negative splits! Mile 1 – 11:25, mile 2 – 10:59, mile 3 – 10:48, last bit – 9:51 pace.

There was what looked like an awesome after party which included free beer, hot dish, music, and costume contests, but we couldn’t stick around. My kiddo had a friend coming over to play that morning so I had to hurry home!

The swag was excellent!! This might be the best quality race shirt I’ve ever gotten!

The medal is an oven mitt! You know, for taking your hot dish out of the oven!

In conclusion, A+ race. Would race again. Who knows, maybe I’ll even do the 10-mile next year!
