Energizer Night Race 2010 with Adidas

The course (run through a zoo)
On Saturday night I hopped on a subway bound for Seoul Grand Park, where the Energizer Night Race 2010 was being held. This 5km race was held in the dark. Your race kit came with a reflective running shirt, a reflective bib, and a headlamp. The course ran through a zoo at night and, due to inclement weather, in the rain. It was AWESOME. Apparently we ran by wolves, and bears, but the only animals I saw were goats :(
The race also reminded me how out of shape I was.  As soon as I crossed the finish line, the chip on my shoe registered my time, when then automatically got sent via text message to my cell phone (again, AWESOME) telling me that my finish time was 37 minutes. Oops!
Me wish my headlamp, poncho, reflective bib, and "participation medal"
I decided from that point that the only way to continue to feel the need to run was to keep entering in more races so I have something to train towards. The next race it looks like I'm signing up for is over Halloween (10km), and then one in mid November (10km). It's time for me to get back in shape!
