As you know, I love me a good fun run. I typically run 10-15 races a year. I am planning on participating in the The Hard Cider Run again this year. I ran the race the past 2 years in Virginia and really, is it a hard run here. Part of it is up a mountain and I can not run up a mountain but I make a good attempt. It really test me physically and mentally. Before the race ever starts, I am pumped up and ready to go but when I get to the hill, I am like dang it, why am I doing this but when I get to the top and I am so pumped that I just run the rest of the way. Plus, you get a free medal at the end for kicking its butt. This is a fun run and you get some yummy hard cider at the end of it.
Now this can be a family fun event as well. The entire family is allowed to run. They have youth sized shirts and they get non-alcoholic apple cider at the end. I find that running this race is fun as a team. I like having my friends help push me along and I am able to help encourage them as we go. Plus, you get a $5.00 discount for registering as a team of 4+.
