I never got around to posting- but Saturday we ran the Holiday Hustle and watched the glow in the dark parade in downtown Maumee. It's our fourth year in a row doing it- and it was definitely the coldest that I can remember! The race was fabulous- but after we stopped and the sweat froze it became pretty miserable.
The race itself was especially fun because I ran with my 5K class. I just taught an eight week class at the YMCA called 'train to run your first 5k'. It was so much fun. I loved the people in the class and I loved running the race with them! I told them they need to run a warmer 5k before they decide to give up on running altogether. Most of them loved the race despite the frigid temps.
After the race- we waited for what seemed like FOREVER for the parade. We should have just gone home. It was waaay too cold and the parade was a little on the lame side this year. Both kiddos were freezing- and I couldn't feel my toes. The idea of the parade is quite magical and festive- but the execution this year was lacking.
