Cupid's Chase 5K

***I've tried everything, the finish line photo will only publish upside down. And that's NOT our actual finishing time--it's just when we took the photo****

I woke up at 6am on Saturday to frigid temperatures (23F) and gusty winds and snow--perfect weather for a 5K along the Hudson River.....

After warming ourselves with a healthy breakfast of steel cut oats and fresh ginger tea, Erica and I braved the snow to complete 3.2 miles with about 2000 other runners. Though the weather was miserable, we had a good time overall. Earning 3 bonus points wasn't bad either!

Mary and Steve--we hope your race was just as fun--would you blog about it as well?

For those interested in doing other races, I'll be scoping out some others in NYC. Erica is already aiming for the NYC Dualthon (2 mi run, 10 mi bike, 2 mi run). What races do you have planned?

Hope everyone had a good weekend!

I love the upside down photo! Fits well with the insanity of those temperatures we braved! Let's never do that again.

I did sign up for my first duathlon! (MARCH MADNESS DUATHLON) Anyone want to join me??
