Rudolph's Revenge 5K & 10K

Friday night, I went to a friend's house for a very nice Christmas party. It didn't last too long, so we all went home at a decent hour.

The next morning, my alarm went off. I went to turn it off, but missed in the dark, hitting snooze instead - and fell asleep again. So ten minutes later, it went off again. This time I turned it off - and fell asleep again! And over-slept until 8:30. So I got a late start.

The Colorado Runner Magazine Winter Distance Series began today. The weather was clear, cold, and much nicer than the blizzard of two years ago.

This year, instead of helping with registration or Start/Finish, I helped along the course where the 5K runners turn, and the 10K runners go straight. Even though I'm not running much these days, I still enjoyed getting some mileage walking to and from.

There was more traffic than I would have normally expected, so the race really caused some trafffic issues for drivers. I felt bad about that, but it was a sanctioned event. Since I wasn't at the finish, I don't know what the results were, but the weather seemed to really cooperate.
