Yesterday, I participated in Night Nation Run in Englishtown NJ. It was a fun experience and first run event this year. Though I still prefer walking over running, I’m starting to like running and want to go full fledge in it. If you believe me, I’m thinking to participate in Ironman too (blush blush ;)) …. I know its a long way to go, but I’ve taken first step..
This was a good event started with DJ, Drinks and cheerful faces of people around. I was with two other friends and we got our bib and race packet pretty soon. We danced and hollered till we couldn’t and started our race as third wave of people. Excitement was all around. People returning were waving and high-fived us. We ran, walked, laughed, giggled. 5 miles this way was a piece of cake. We took snaps at different check-posts and finished this event in 2 hours.
And then we were hungry. A big order of fries found its way to our stomach pretty soon. I never thought fries so delicious. Hunger is a good feeling, you start value things around you. :D.. After feeling content, we all were quiet and peaceful. We just sat and watched people for sometime and then started for home.
Getting my car out of parking lot was a monumental task. But after 20 mins, I got out alive and thus ended my first run event of this year. I definitely plan to go again next year and I’ve already signed up for other run events happening this year 😉
I wish this momentum not to break and I wish next year, around same time, I write a blog of my experience in Ironman triathlon.
Happy Running to my fellow Runners.
