Saturday morning Jon and I woke up extra early and headed down to Brooklyn Bridge Park to take part in the 14th Annual Eileen C. Dugan Memorial 5K. This is the first year that it was held at this location and even though it was FREEZING I'm still really glad that we did it. Brooklyn Borough President Marty Markowitz came out to say a few words and to pass out Brooklyn pins to the race participants. And then it was time to run.
The course allowed us amazing views of Manhattan as well as the Brooklyn Bridge and Manhattan Bridge. There were people out along the course braving the frigid temperatures to cheer us along and that helped us out so much. We finished the race just at 30 minutes with huge smiles on our faces and left shortly thereafter to find a hot cup of coffee and some brunch. Hopefully the weather conditions will be a little kinder next year.
