Last Friday night I celebrated the end of the billing year by participating in the Orange County Electric Run 5k. I have no idea how I even came across this race, but after watching the promo video, I knew I had to sign up. It was like a dance party in Tron universe.
It rained most of the day on Friday, but cleared up just in time for the race to start. I had low expectations as to how many people would be there and how it would actually look in real life, and it pretty much knocked my socks off! There were over 10,000 people! This basically made it impossible to find friends, but in a sea of neon lights and tutus, I did manage to find my sexiest friend Sanaz and we ran most of the race together.
As for what it looked like? Hot damn. The people who put together the race really did a phenomenal job of making it visually stimulating. If I couldn't see where I was going because it was so dark, at least I could be mesmerized by the sea of lights.
The race itself was not very difficult and honestly, I don't think it was a legit 3.1 miles. That being said, I had a blast fist pumping my way past the finish line!
