Date 135 - Let The Dawgs Run Wild!

Date: November 1, 2014
Type: Theme, Exercise
Cost: $
Planned By: Bernie Kosar

We are big Cleveland Browns fans. When we heard about the Bernie Kosar 5K shuffle in downtown Cleveland we knew we had to do it. We have done a couple other runs in the past - Cleveland 5K, Run or Dye 5K and the Sombrero Shuffle. We thought having the Browns theme would be awesome. Adam's parents also signed up for the race with us. We all got ready in the morning and made our way to downtown. Here are some of our before pictures:
The race was 3.1 miles around downtown. It started and ended at Voinovich Park. Being Cleveland and the beginning of November the weather did not disappoint. We ran in a wind chill of 32 degrees with rain and strong gusts of wind. It was horrible. 
I have decided that I much prefer the spring/summer 5Ks. All four of us did finish and received our super cool medals! We were also lucky enough to get a couple of the Bernie Beers. We didn't stick around to meet Bernie who was hanging out in his (probably warm) bus.  Here are some of the after photos:

Looking back this 5K was kind of fun. I'm not sure if I will do it again because of the time of year and potential for terrible weather again. If they could guarantee nice weather I'm sure it would be a lot more fun - but what can you expect from Cleveland.

On Sunday we had an early Tailgate Birthday Party for Michelle and Zak at our house. We had lots of good food including Jet's pizza, party pretzels, buffalo chicken dip, salad and Cinnastack cupcakes! We all enjoyed watching the Browns win together, but I didn't take any pictures - oops!
