Kicking off the New Year with a 5k is better than waking up to a hangover. This morning, I woke up to bitterly cold temperatures. This part of Virginia is considered the sweet spot – never too hot and never too cold. That was not the case this morning. Dressing in layers was going to be essential as the breeze made it just a bit colder.
Small races like this are made possible by the countless volunteers, and each person was super nice as we collected our bibs and shirts at Merchants Square.
After pinning my bib, I headed down the Duke of Gloucester Street for a quick warmup. On a nice day, this road is packed with tourists, but today only runners could be seen stretching their legs and crisscrossing the road.
