Freeze Your Thorns Off Results & Giveaway Winners!


.....Ok, depending on how you read this blog, you MIGHT have been able to see a sneak peek of this post 1/2 way complete.  Sorry!!

Because of computers, when you run an in person race, no sooner than grabbing your medal and wiping the snot off of your face, you can log on to see your instant chip timed race results.  Running my virtual Freeze Your Thorns Off 5K is essentially the same way if by “instant” you mean “3 weeks”.  What I lack in speed, I make up for with good looks.....endowment... prizes!  Sweet sweet prizes. So, since I only have 5 of them, there are going to be 295 annoyed people and 5 people who love me to death. Who says you can’t buy friends?!   (Prize winners at the bottom)

Overall the FYTO5K response was larger than I could ever have hoped.  I feel that there is a real thirst for virtual races right now – they are free, fun, and a great way to generate some motivation to get out the door and run FAST. There were 293 people signed up and I received 169 race entries – amazing.  Part of what took me so long to get the results out was that I did go through and read every single race report that was sent my way.  I figure that it is the least I could do.  If you posted a picture of yourself, you should expect to see it here!  If you don’t see your results in the table below, let me know and I can get them added for sure.

(On a bit of a serious note....) What my irreverent little virtual race lacked in seriousness, SUAR’s Run for Sherry made up for in everything that runners stand for: Compassion, organization, and a true drive to get out on the roads.  Well that, and she got her freaking results posted ON TIME.  Kuddos to Beth for putting that together for her Cousin. May she rest in peace knowing that she brought thousands of runners together doing something that she enjoyed.

That said, without further ado, here is the results summary – thank you all so much for participating!



Ray @ Running in a world of pink scheduled a run w/ his church buddies - and 23 people showed up!!!! But, they forgot a camera.  So, I stole this picture from an earlier post on his blog.  Let's all assume that all of the people running around him are not actually running a Half marathon, but running FYTO.


Christine ran the race 17 days POST BABY!!  I mean, I'm not sure that is exactly what the Doctor ordered, buuuuut, it is still pretty kick-ass
(also, I think that 90% of my female readers hate her for looking so go post baby)


A hometown buddy Thomas (who also ran my Iowa Marathon) ran a 1:50 min PR!
Thumbs up for frostbite


Good Running Habits ran with spikes on so she didn't fall.  She ended up running her son's paper route with papers that weighed 27 kilos.  I'm not sure of the conversion, but I'm almost positive that it means that she carried 790 pounds of papers.
She's looking for jobs as a Sherpa


Julie did hers in the TRUE spirit of the FREEZE your throrns off - with a team of sled dogs!
Or, maybe just in the snow with her normal dogs.  Either way

Running in Boise SAID that she froze, but she was indoors.  Hmmmm - at least she looked good in the compression socks!

Sam ran in ZERO degrees (c) - although, she did say that she was too lazy to print the bib off.  I'll let it slide, THIS time.

Loreleig not only ran the virtual race, but included it as her FIRST EVER post!  I'd like to think that means I'm spreading the herps blog fever, one virtual race at a time.


Mitch decided he wasn't a #1 kind of a guy and thought that he was 3.14x as good as everyone else. (Those might be my words and not his)

Jenny proves that the Appalachian mountains are what we should all be jealous of

Mike did a fun trail run after volunteering to help clear the trail.  Not to be one to be content with a NORMAL race, he decided to do some bridge hopping as well. (And take pictures of SuperKate in compromising positions)


Daniel ran in honor of his father who is fighting cancer
....as well as perfected the self shot photo

Jamie ran it as part of another freeze series called the Freezeroo.  Love it!!

Fortunately, she was able to stay on her feet... Umm.... not everyone was (as seen on her run:

J didn't post a race report, but I found this picture on her blog and for some reason cracked up.  Let that be a lesson, if you don't post a race report, I'll troll your blog for other random pictures and post them!

Michael too decided that he wasn't #1, and instead went with 1850 - and blacked out the faces of my freezer dudes!


Laura ran hers as part of a Chocolate 10K

Rose set a MONSTER PR and decided that 5Ks suck - but I can tell is totally going to try to beat her time

Joanna ran on a SUPER sunny day


Tracy said that she dressed like a "homeless person hovering over a barrel fire".  
Those really were her words, not mine

Mike K represented the race WELL. I get cold just looking at him.

TriMOEngr ran on a bright windy day



Andrew Opala had a bit of a cracked foot issue which caused him to run a rather strange route. Check it out:

Miranda did the race RIGHT.  Not only did she run in the cold, but there might have been a bit of pregaming with bloody marys followed by some hipster beer:


Mmmmm, tastes like skinny jeans....

Miranda had the BEST.RUN.EVER.  So, that is good


Connie bundled up JUST enough to make sure that nothing froze off

Jess said that she about blew away, but at least looked good doing it!


Jen ran with her dog and got REALLY splattered by him kicking up mud all over her legs/thighs.  But, that didn't slower her down running 5 miles in 45 min!

The Craft Chick got out there and hammered out a great time! (get it, crafts? Hammers? har har)

Christine has a goal to run a race each month like I do. 1 down, 11 to go!
Hope you hurry - Feb is 1/2 over!!

I still don't know how people do this, but Rebecca was pushing a LOT more weight than normal with her stoller! This is the biggest stroller I've ever seen!!


Maddy doesn't own a printer anymore.  Good effort though!
Although, running while carrying a laptop probably isn't a GREAT idea.

Katie had the worst 5K she had ever done, but made up for it with this hilarious picture
Saluting? Actually, covering her nose from a horrible smell

Carrie is a VERY brave soul....She took an ice bath after her run!  Cripes, not sure if I could ever do another one of those. Freezes my man bits RIGHT off

Kelly, AllieFay and Brandon had a snot contest in a richy richy neighborhood. Now, that is MY kind of race!



BitterHag Running posted a report that included lots of pictures of her dogs.  Ummm, yup.

Jennifer looks hard core cranking out her 8:30 pace miles!

BabyWeightMyFatAss ran in MISERABLE conditions:



Mikey ran his as part of an icy 15 miler in the mtns of Colorado Springs. He certainly froze SOMETHING off

Christina was our official race photog at the in-person version. Fortunately, I was able to grab a picture of her putting a medal on a sweaty JeffG

Chicken went for a run with the dogs.  Of course, like all dogs they HAD to be in on the action too. Hilarious!

Dina is in central Florida, so she didn't freeze ANYTHING off.
She can hang out in "awesome weather land" with me while everyone hates us

Like I mentioned above, not only did Kate crawl over bridges, it looks like she also was getting ready to go spilunking?

Rachel ran an official 5K course that she found on Daily Mile.  
The hilarious part? It was on the Tabacco trail.


Local PHX runner Mike wasn't able to run the in person version because he had to run with his Team in Training group (he is the coach).  That is just about the only excuse that I would accept.

X-Country^2 said that she kind of hates me because it is sunny and warm in Phoenix all the time.  Yeah, I get that a lot.  Lucky for me, she still went through many self-timer pictures pre-run.

Missy ran her virtual run as part of a real run - where there was a lack of port a potties.  Of course, if you were part of the in-person race.  You'd find that there were NO port a potties, so you wouldn't have to worry about it!

Girl Evolving AND her husband both ran the race together.  It was his longest run in 3 months and......oh by the way they found a MOUSE in their house! I've done some research on this topic and I just have one thing to say - do NOT give it a cookie. That shit gets outta hand.
(Ok, I realize these are sideways.... They are showing upright in EVERY photo editing software I have. Help!)




Finally, it seems that every time I do one of my virtual races, there is ALWAYS a story that touches my heart and warms my soul to the joys of running.  This time, the story was Melanie's.  I couldn't tell her story like she can, so here it is in her own words:

My first 5k that I actually ran w/out stopping the whole way! Not the most impressive time, but for me it means the world! I had a lung collapse and broken arm last year, so getting back into the game has been difficult to say the least.  Starting at ground zero is most humbling.  You gave me the impetus to get out there and do it! It was somewhat chilly in Boston today so I sorta kinda did freeze my "thorns" off :)  Tears of joy are splashing off my cheeks as I type this right now, because finishing this 5K in its entirety w/out stopping or walking once, was a goal I thought i'd never accomplish.

I kid you not, if you Google Image Body Glide, this picture comes up - I suppose if you're playing soccer in a bikini you WOULD need body glide.....

Nuun!!!  No calories, fizz, electrolytes, delicious

Also, if you put Nuun in wine? Not that bad!

i can't BELIEVE you didn't include me in your list! I had to go back and see when the FYTO run was and it was Jan 28th. I haven't updated my blog since the ironman so I had to go to BT and look at my schedule to see that I did that day and I only cycled. BUT I ran on 1/31. AND it was a FIVE K!!

Course, here in Mexico it wasn't even close to cool let along cold and no freezing was involved, but if I had been up to running on 28-Jan I would have done your silly run and it would have been on BT and all you would have had to do is figure out my userid and check that date for my workout and you would have seen it there!!! (again had I actually run on the 28...but I did run on the 31st. Close enough)

I can't believe you didn't include me.

I think maybe your're racist against Mexicans. you're in Arizona aren't you?

(well, I'm not really Mexican either but I do live in Mexico and have temporary residency and that's close enough).

HMPH! (stomps off in a huff)

oh, and due to your oversight, I want the condoms as an apology. I'm pretty sure they were on your list of prizes and I really should win one. So I want the condoms. Oh, and I really need my mail muled down here too. Get on that one. K? TIA! Toodles!

Damn! Just like a real 5k, no win for me. I did, however, get my picture on your blog twice, so there's that. Congratulations to the winners, and congratulations to you, hitting the big time with such a huge turnout! Very cool

Congrats to the winners!

As it says in the post, I do live in "awesome weather land" and cannot imagine how anyone can run outside when it is 50 or below. I am such a wuss.

so exciting to see all of the activity around this race. This was my first virtual race and I am so excited to have been part of such a great group! Here is my recap:

I finished in 44:49...a big accomplishment for me considering I am a beginner! Can't wait to do more virtuals!
