First race of 2010
Today's race didn't quite live up to it's name as there were no frozen fannies in sight but it was chilly and slippery. The course was flat (Except, of course, for the hill at the end. Why do they always plan a hill at the end?) and loopy so I was able to see my running buddies a few times. I imagine that it is a beautiful route in the spring and summer months as it appeared that we were in a park that would be lush in warmer weather.
The race was put on by the Bay Area Runner's Club and they know how to do post-race snacks. Not a banana to be found! And although there were apples, they were along side of the chocolate cupcakes with chocolate-peanut butter frosting. They even had soup with crackers and cheese but because we were headed to the Souper Cafe we opted out of the soup.
It was a great way to start out the 2010 running year!
