New Year's Revolution Run

I set my alarm last night for 7 this morning. I figured it would give me plenty of time to get to the Oval on time to start the race at 8. I woke up around 6:30, but went back to sleep. I woke up around 7:45 when the sun was shining through the window. Oh no!! It turns out I set my alarm for Saturday NOT Friday!! I got dressed and headed out the door as fast as I could. 

I ended up getting to the race about 15 min late, but that's the great this about this one. You can run as much or as little as you want and you can start any time with in their 5 hour limit. 

I normally run a half marathon each time I do this race, but this year I'm trying to be smart with my miles and I thought it'd be good to just stick with hitting my 10,000 steps. Which is close to 5 miles. 

My great friend Shelley was there and I stuck with her 90% of the time. She's such a great example of being positive. I 

 I ended up running 15 or 16 laps. I lost count. Haha! But I hit my 10,000 plus some. 

I love that this race is a great start to the new year. My goal for 2016 is to post every day I run. I want to figure out my hashimotos and I want to still be able to incorporate running into my routine. I have a few races planned for this year and I want to do the best I can.
