This morning was the Santa Hustle 5K in Milwaukee. After our rain/snow ordeal this past week, it was icy on parts of the path, but overall not too bad. When we got there it was about 18 degrees outside. Thankfully we were able to park under the art museum, which has heated parking. We hung out in there until shortly before the race.
The race was great, they gave us santa beards, hats, and shirts to dress up in. There were probably well over a thousand santas running through Veteran’s Park downtown. The frigid temperatures made it a little more difficult to breathe, I wore a scarf like thing around my mouth to keep the air I was breathing a little bit warmer.
I’m happy to say I finished. I don’t know what my time was yet, but regardless I made it through, and in those temperatures. I have another cold run at the end of January at the Milwaukee County Zoo – the Samson Stomp. I’m expecting it to be even chillier.
