I do believe that winter has decided to skip its visit to the southern parts of Louisiana altogether. After back to back race weekends of crazy cold weather, old man winter did not stick around for Christmas. Sadly, it was a warm and humid Christmas complete with AC. (When it decided to run properly!)
After Christmas-ing all weekend with family, I decided that Monday morning was the perfect time for a run, despite the stupid temperatures outside.
As a Gone For A Run Ambassador, I occasionally receive opportunities to participate in their virtual races free of charge. The Catch Me If You Can Virtual 5K was no exception! Thank you, Gone For A Run!
I was excited to run this 5K for a couple of reasons - #1, Santa brought a new Garmin to me for Christmas and #2, I had the chance to try out my new RokBAND in a different way (besides covering my face and nose at the Santa Hustle so it wouldn't freeze and fall off).
This 5K was completed around my normal at-home route. I also started coming down with yet another sinus issue on Monday, so I took this run slow and easy because I was having trouble breathing.
I am in love with the features on my new Garmin!!
Afterward, I had Jason take a picture of my sweaty self with my medal in front of the tree!
I LOVED the RokBAND and definitely want more in different colors! The "ugly sweater" pattern was perfect for Christmas and paired nicely with my Gone For A Run Christmas shirt (purchased by yours truly for the Santa Hustle).
The medal for this race was adorable, too! I haven't tried the cookie/ornament press on the back but it's definitely something I would like to do!
Overall, this race was a fun one and I loved participating! For $20, runners received a bib and medal. Add-ons such as the RokBAND were an additional fee.
Thanks, Gone For A Run!
