Today is the first day of the 31 day Janathon challenge and I couldn’t think of a better way to start 2014 than with a run. This year I participated in my first ever January 1st run. I signed up this past Sunday so there was no official training for the run but I did choose the to do the 10K instead of the 5K because I am running at least that far in training for my upcoming marathon (in April). It was a wonderful race with about 1500 of my closest running friends. They gave away hats and gloves instead of t-shirts which was pretty cool idea. What was even better was the medals they are wine stoppers. Another great idea, even though I will probably never really put it in a bottle of wine but I really like it and nothing like a little bling to start the new year. Enjoy the photos and I hope you all have a wonderful 2014!
