I'm super excited! Today I signed up for the Rosehill Cemetery Crypt 5k. How awesome does this race sound? A 5k. At night. Through a historic cemetery. Weeeeeeeeee! I can't wait!
You can find out more at the event's website.
Yes, I know that it is a gimmick. But you have to admit that it is a great gimmick. How often do you get to legally run through an awesome cemetery at night?
As I've mentioned before, I love races. I'm not competitive, at all. I'm slow, and I'm lucky if I manage not to be the last person to cross the finish line. I'm never going to win any awards. And I'm okay with that. I just love running races. I love feeling like part of a community. I love the goal that races give me to work towards. It is much harder to give into my laziness and not go for a run when I have a set date where I have to run a specific distance in front of people, especially when I paid money to do it.
I can't wait for October to arrive! A nice bonus is that Rosehill isn't too far from my home, so I should be able to walk to the event and not worry about gear check.
