One of my Christmas presents was being registered for the Valentine's TC 5K in Minneapolis with my running buddy Rebecca (since my mom saved $6 registering both of us)! Like I had said before, this race sort of just crept up on me!!!

The course was actually cleared of snow and pretty flat so it was a fairly nice and relaxing run/walk. This race was definitely smaller than the Reindeer Run, which was nice since we could enjoy the course instead of having to move and be crowded by others throughout the run. I loved that we could actually take in the scenery (along with the interesting attire some people where wearing).
We finished in 46:34 which was awesome since the last 5K we did in December was in the upper 57 minutes and some odd seconds. I think a lot of our better time had to do with having the course cleared of snow, though we were both excited!
The free food afterward was definitely not as much as we received at the Reindeer Run. They had water, Old Dutch potato chips, Salted Nut Rolls, bananas, and heart shaped iced bakery cookies. I think the reason they didn't have as much food wise is because with our registration we got a hat, socks and a technical long sleeve shirt!! Rebecca and I really like that this race was less congested and it especially helped since we had run our first race there!
