On Thursday night, I ran the Oktoberfest 5K with the Wurst Running Club Ever.
How embarrasing, we all wore the same Dirndl
Just kidding, we ordered them from Spreadshirt.
I didn’t really have a goal for this race, other than run hard and have fun. And … look cute. I even “did” my hair.
Anywho. I was a bit sore from a Megaformer class the night before. Plus, it was hot (upper 80s) and humid.
I ran with Mo for the first mile-ish.
Thanks to Mr. Loop Looks for being our club photographer.
There were quite a few puddles on the course, and I’m pretty sure I swallowed a bug at one point. And it was muggy. I just kept pushing my heart rate, but I knew I was nowhere near a PR.
Near the end, I ran past Declan, Mrs Declan, Lil Smokie and the Wurst (sorry, Wurs) Race Sign Ever.
I finished in 25:25, which is my slowest 5K since the ZOOMA 5K, and that had a significant long uphill. But, as I mentioned, I haven’t been running as much, and it was muggy, and who cares, I looked cute, right?
And I think the first race for the Wurst Running Club Ever was a success.
If you’d like to hang out with the WRCE, join us for the next Pint Night at Fleet Feet Lincoln Square or the next Chicago Running Bloggers Beer Run! Requirements: You have to like beer, sausage, running and TWSS jokes. And look good in a Dirndl or Dirndl t-shirt. (Which you can still order.)
