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.

What did you cross off your Bucket List this Top Ten Tuesday?

  1. you’re kind of amazing. In this heat!? Are you joking!?!?

  2. Can’t believe you ran in the heat! I ran on the treadmill last night, even that was brutal with air conditioning!
