The new “Light it up Run 5k” in Wayland was a BLAST! This Glow in the dark type race spiced up the typical 5k race and made it fun for the whole family. I think this was my most favorite race yet! I got dressed up in the most ridiculous, bright, and gaudy glow in the dark costume I could come up with because there was a costume contest I wanted to compete in. I then learned that running in all that stuff was going to be challenging, but I managed to keep my whole get-up on for the entire race. The fiery baton twirlers, professional dancers, and dance party after the race made the event that much for fun.
On another note, I am suffering from plantar fasciitis in one foot. This is driving me absolutely insane because after the Light it up 5k, it aggravated it and my foot was quite sore and swollen. Taking a few weeks off of running to let it heal up as much as possible before my next race.
