…and Yes it was a Christmas-themed one.
The Rudolph Ramble was a blast, despite some icy patches on the roads (I saw more than one runner bite it, and almost went down myself as I turned the final corner) The race officials diverted us around the worst patches of ice as best they could. (Cheers to Capri Events for yet another well-organized race.)
Fortunately for December, the weather was mild. No fifteen layer outfits necessary.
My goal was to finish in under an hour, and I just squeaked by. I’m pretty sure my time will be around 58 minutes when official times come in.
We finished the race by watching the 4-5 year olds compete in a 50 yard dash. One little boy who began the race busting his butt eventually wore himself out and was passed by a kid who clearly knew the concept of pace. Runners, let that be a lesson.
We really ran the race as an excuse to indulge in Eric’s official birthday dinner at Texas de Brazil. Let’s not lie.
