In case you haven't noticed, I really, really like to make lists. I can't possibly keep up with my ever-expanding bucket list, but at least I write my goals down so I don't forget them. A long time ago, I added "participate in a road race" to the list, and I'm FINALLY able to cross it off.
I think I enjoyed dressing up (I was a reindeer) and getting free beer more than the actual running, but I'm glad I did it. In fact, I've already signed up for my next race in March. Can't wait to come up with another fun costume!
