Another Hypo Half

2017hypohalf

On Friday I went to the Running Room to pick up my race kit for today’s Hypothermic Half Marathon only to find out that they had no record of my registration and they were sold out.  On one hand, that wasn’t so bad because I had not done any training, but I had friends that were doing the race.

Yesterday Spirit and I spent almost 2 hours kick sledding and I was exhausted…but I still had this nagging voice in my head that said I really should do the half.  To make a long story short, I got my butt out of bed at 6:15 this morning and met my friends at the start line.  It was a cold and windy day but we toughed it out and finished.   Since I was a bandit (non-paying participant) I wasn’t allowed to attend the brunch afterwards but I was more than happy to jump into the car and crank the heated seats to maximum to try and warm up.   I hit the closest Timmies on the way home and then had a nice long soak in the hot tub.  I’m sure my body will hate me tomorrow morning but I’m glad I did it.
