The 5k was first, and due to the heavy traffic they were nice enough to delay the start for those having trouble getting to the race. Our race was around 15 minutes behind the original start time. We kept warm by being our normal goofy selves in the corral.
As we topped the hill at mile 5 we noticed some spectators had a whiskey station set up and they were pouring shots! We passed by briefly, then ended up giving into the fun and downing one. To say it burned is an understatement. I think that shot burned my stomach for the next 2 miles! This girl does not drink whiskey, and I kept thinking, what in the world did I just do? It does make for a funny story though!
The course also had some great spectators toward the end followed by a warm cup of hot chocolate and lots of sweets!
I'm not real big on sweets, so all the chocolate was a bit too much for my tummy to handle. Now if they had been handing out cadbury eggs, we may have to talk. (#sorrynotsorry, Easter candy on the brain) On the way home we opted for some fuzzy tacos instead!
All in all I was pretty satisfied with the results considering the cold, the wind, and the hilly course. The medal is definitely sweet, but most importantly we had a great time!
