On New Years Day this year I ran the 31st Annual rescue Run in Colorado Springs. I ran this race last year and really enjoyed it. It benefits a really good cause and it’s a great thing to do on New Years Day. The news station asked me to say a few words and I just now hunted down the footage. So check it out...my part is super short, just a simple “It’s a healthy way to start the new year”.
The race went really well, I ended up with 3rd overall in the 5K and I was about 20 seconds away from the course record for my age group which was broken by the second place lady. I ran 22:03 on a super hilly course.
If your looking for a good New Years race to run, think about this one for next year!
