5 Klicks

Five kilometer races are tests of speed. Run fast, run hard, see how quick you can get across that line. A baseline time for my 5K is 30 minutes, but I range within 5 minutes of that depending on the day. I don’t run a lot of these, and often I don’t bother writing much about them unless they were particularly interesting.

Resolution Run (2020)

Each year for at least a decade I’ve been negating my ability to sleep in on the first day of the year in exchange for the glory of running a simple five klick race. The annual Resolution Run is a weather gamble, bringing out a thousand ambitious runners in sub-zero temperatures — fewer and fewer with each successive degree below freezing.

This year was no different.
