My New Years Eve was spent downtown doing a 5K run! I had five of my wonderful friends running with me. We arrived downtown around 10 pm, and hung out in the pre-race area watching karaoke and a costume contest. I glammed up my gals, using some glitter liquid liners (Urban Decay Heavy Metal Glitter in Glam Rock and Metalhead and Hard Candy Walk the Line). We lined up at the starting line just before midnight and counted down to the new year.
It was weird running a race at night. I don’t usually run outside at night even in training, so racing in the dark felt a little weird. The rain had ceased for the start of the race, but near the last part of the run, it started to rain. I wore my new Brooks Nightlife running jacket, which I hadn’t worn before, and was worried it wouldn’t be waterproof enough, but it kept me pretty dry. I was still damp from the inside out at the end of the race though, and very ready to go home!
