Yesterday was the Monster Dash 5k here in the Twin Cities. I ran with some friends and it was an awesome time! Except for a few bumps in the road like losing my husband in the crowd of 16,000 people but *spoiler alert* we found him! 🙂
So the 5k race started at 9am in St. Paul by the Science Museum. And as I mentioned before, there were A LOT of people. Granted, not everyone there was running the 5k as there was also a 10 mile race and a half marathon. I think next year I will run the 10 miles. At this point, I feel like I can do a 5k no problem. If you asked me a year ago if I thought I could run more than 5 minutes without stopping, I would have laughed and said no. It’s amazing what your body can do!
We actually ran more than the 5k as my group and I started late and ran from the very back of the line lol. And can I just say, the run just goes by so fast when I’m using my Zombies, Run app. I love this app! It alternates between missions and zombies sightings/chases to your own music. So the half hour of running felt like 5 minutes. 🙂 And it helped that everyone around me was dressed up in their Halloween costumes so it was great to people watch while running at the same time. As for me, I dressed up as Hello Kitty of course! 🙂
