‘Staching through the cold

Standard

StacheDashFinishers

Mike and I did our second 5K together in a month when we wogged our way to the finish line at the ‘Stache Dash.   The run was in support of Movember, an international movement to raise awareness for prostate cancer and other men’s issues.  It was nice to know that part of race fee was contributed directly to the Movember charity.

After somewhat warmer weather earlier in the week, things had turned cold in Milwaukee – just in time for the Saturday event.  Although it helped that the race had a later start time of 12 noon, it was still a mere 23 degrees – with 15-mph winds – when we queued up.  We ended up bringing up the rear when my mustache hat flew off in one of the gusts and I ran back to retrieve it.  At least I got some extra running in!   The costumes were super fun, and there was pretty scenery along our route.

We had a great time despite the cold.  The best part was that Mike brought home his first medal!  Now we just have to find someplace to display it in the rig where it won’t take a chunk outta the wall as we motor down the road.
