TTT: Run a Race
Tonight, I would like to single-handedly thank Lady Gaga for getting me through all 3.1 miles of the Hoboken Party with a Purpose 5K. It was 95 degrees, there were only two water stations, and I was quite certain that I was going to pass out cold on the pavement…
…but then “Marry the Night” came on my playlist, I channeled my inner Warrior Queen, and I crossed the finish line strong. Well, strong for me. Which I’m proud of!
Isn’t this the most beautiful finish line backdrop ever?
I’ve been running for pleasure for a long time, but this was my very first official race. And certainly not my last! If I can run in that heat, I’m pretty sure I can run in anything. Dare I say it was actually fun?
Plus, all the Vitamin Waters, Clif Bars, and fruit that I stole from the finish line totally paid off the race registration fee.
