3 easy miles and a full body workout......then I will take the next couple of days off before I run the “Beat the New Year 5k at Sugar House Park in Salt Lake City Utah. This should be a rather enjoyable run as the weather is supposed to be rather favorable with no wind , 27 degrees and about 50% humidity. Happy New Year !

Well that was a great New Years Eve Run ! As usual the Beat the New Years 5k was just great, well organized and full of fun runners . Beat the New Year 5k celebrated its “40th” year last night. I think I’ve done this fun run at least 10 times and plan on doing it many more times in the future! I finished my run thru the park in 23:01 and beat the start of the New Year. At the finish line we were awarded finisher coffee mugs and cookies. Shortly there after I was awarded $25.00 for best costume, I’m not to sure what the to do was all about, I was just wearing my Red White & Blue Stars Bars Running clothing. The to finish it off we all danced and were all of good cheer as we watched the fireworks and passed into the New Year... Happy New Year to all you crazy runner friends of mine! Oh ya, instead of a T-Shirt this year they presented all runners with a light weight full front zipper hoodie!
