Sunday was the Boxing Day 10 miler in Hamilton. This is a GREAT race…amazing volunteers and police officers, great swag, good facilities and food after…and a free beer post race. Sweet..
Pre race excitement:
Slow mo running for the camera before the start line:
Racing on in:
Overall I was really happy with the race. I held 7+ repeats at the threshold pace my coach wanted me to try and I fought through my brain telling me to stop. Honestly…I could have been faster but I specifically slowed down when I wasn’t doing the thresholds…and I lost 3 min at a portapotty. Duh..
We didn’t do a lot of boxing day shopping but I did score a few amazing deals
Aussie Luxe boots – I want to wear these all day….
Dash tights – on sale at lulu online..
I am also pretty happy to have not gone overboard over the holidays…running has been great, spin/core is back on and while we haven’t been strict, it has been mindful.
Of course…I am doing a bit of saving up for New Years Eve where we are having a totally decadent meal at our fave restaurant. It ain’t all about the control you know..
