Athlete's Closet Winter Series (3 of 4)

The race was supposed to be yesterday, but was postponed to today because of icy conditions yesterday.  I didn't get to run yesterday, and I ate a whole lot of food yesterday (mostly junk.....ok, thats bs,.....all junk.)

Race was at 9:30am.  Weather was warmer than the last race a month ago.

Great news for me.  There were a total of 66 runners that ran the race.  I checked the results, and I got 5th place.  I'm pretty excited about that.  (Granted, that was 5th place in my division, the Clydesdale Division.  There were a total of 6 runners in the Clydesdale Division, and the guy who came in 6th was running with his 10 year old daughter, but 5th place is still 5th place!) 

Silver lining, getting real close to not being a Clydesdale anymore.  That is pretty exciting.


Race number.  This will be worth a lot of money some day.

Gathering at the starting line.

Getting ready to start.

Plenty of snow and wet roads

Post face refreshments at the Ice Cream Co in West Chester (right next to the Athlete's Closet).  Doughnuts and hot chocolate.  Nothing like a cup of hot chocolate after a run on a cold day.

So, went home to see how the boys were doing.  They had all of their cars and trucks lined up.

Grampy hard at work watching the boys!

Now, these next 3 pics have nothing to do with running or anything, but all 3 were taken by the boys

Went back over to East High School for an afternoon 3 mile run, since I had to make up for the fact that I missed one yesterday.  Now, just unwind and get ready for the Super Bowl!
