Miracle on Main Street 5k & Santa’s Little Helpers Dash

December is when? Tomorrow? No, that’s not right. Labor Day was just last week and I’m pretty sure that Thanksgiving came early this year.

I can’t believe that it is, first of all, the beginning of the holiday season, and secondly, almost 2018. What the hell is that? It is incredibly clich√©, but the older you get, the¬†years definitely get shorter and time moves at the speed of light, no, ridiculous speed, no…ludicrous speed! When life goes by that quickly, everything goes plaid. (bonus points if you know what movie this is from)

Well, as long as the holidays are here, it’s time to celebrate like it’s 1999 – I just graduated high school with no clue what I wanted to do with my life and I hated running. Hated with a passion is more like it. Fast forward to 2017 and I am geeked to run the Miracle on Main Street 5k and Santa’s Little Helpers Dash. Well, I’m not running the Dash, only the 5k. I looooove me a holiday race. This is the second year for the race and the inaugural race was seriously fun, so I have high hopes for this year.One of the coolest things about this race is the swag. No, it’s not your average race t-shirt. It is a long stripey scarf that is totally warm and incredibly stylish. The scarf comes in red/white and green/white stripes. Last year I went for the green and this year I’m scouting out a red one. I need a collectible set.

While I’m not a fan of long straight stretches of running in a race, I like this course because it goes through neighborhoods and has some fun spectator support along the way. If you didn’t register yet, you can sign up here or the day of the race, by 3:45 p.m. for the 4 p.m. start.

After not running many races in 2017, I guess I’m ending the year with a bang – including this coming Sunday, I’ll have run three 5k’s in 11 days. I’m incredibly happy to be back in the running game and getting pretty stoked to start training for the Mercy Health Glass City Marathon.
