2012 Freeze Fest 5K--Cedar Rapids, Iowa

A perfect winter day for a run outside. Today was the Freeze Fest. A race that is put on every February by the CVRA running club. Last year it was 25 degrees cold and snowy. This year the weather was 38 degrees, completely clear out and not a drop of snow or ice on the ground. This year I was able to enjoy the race with several running friends. Tracy, Rhoni Jo, Stephany, Kris and Lisa. I also saw other people I knew there. Last year's time was 30:20 and this year my time was 28:15 so I beat my time from last year by 2:05. This year I was 7th of 16 in my age group of 35-39.  67th of 137 Women and 210 of 315 overall.
Complete results are HERE.  I took a bunch a pictures of the awesome day!  Enjoy:

An awesome number by the way.  I happen to be 39 years old and this number is divisable  by 13 which happens to be my favorite number.

This is my favorite picture, one that I want to blow up and frame.  It is all of our shoes with our timing chips on.  To me this picture says "The joy of running races with friends!"

Cookies, cookies, muffins, cookies, girl scout cookies, home made cookies, cookie bars, trail mix, chili, bananas, and many more delicious COOKIES!  Yes I do run for food!

The famous "taking a picture of ourselves" picture.

After the race we all put our new race shirt on.  From Left to Right:  Tracy, Rhoni Jo, Stephany and Me!
