Rudolph Ramble 8K

December 16, 2010

aka – The ramble that almost wasn’t

I don’t think that i’m going to be allowed to plan team-building activities for work ever again! My 2 brave co-workers and I (the only ones from the team that did not drop out) went through with running the Rudolph Ramble 8K last weekend, despite the blizzard like snow & wind in Chicago. I had been training in below freezing temps, but with the snow & wind, this race went from fun to downright miserable! It became clear right away that there was no way that I could run the race in my goal time, so I transitioned my thinking & focused on getting through without quitting. Due to the re-routing of the course, it was a bit crowded, and there were no mile-markers along the way, making it difficult to determine when the race was going to end. The MVP award goes to the boyfriend who stayed & took pictures, and turned up looking like a snowman at the end!
