Kelly’s Korner: Don’t Break the Ice!

Presented this week without annotation!

On your mark, get set, GO! The 33rd annual Ice Breaker Road Race is this Sunday in Downtown Great Falls. Grab your favorite pair of Nike’s and join over 3,400 people for the 1 mile, 3 mile and 5 mile event. If you need a little incentive to get going, Orbit our trusty mascot, will be there cheering on runners and walkers, playing with the kids and participating in the 1 mile fun run.

For most participants, this is an event to work toward accomplishing a goal, to get together with friends and a fun way to be a part of the Great Falls community. This is true for Orbit as well but I have a sneaking suspicion the Alien is taking things one step further. Every time I walk by the training room, Orbit is training on the treadmill or working on his powerlifts. You’d think it was a crazy CrossFit workout he’s doing. Plus, I know that none of us in the office are drinking three protein shakes a day. Let’s just say to keep an eye on our mascot, he’s always got some sort of trick up his sleeve. I’ll be out there on Sunday and I expect to see some fast runners (listen for the name Matt Baker), a good costume or two (look for super hero Cord Houston) and lots of smiling faces.

The real fun will happen after the race when the loser of a long standing bet between some of my buddies will have to jump into the Missouri River. The temperature right now is a balmy 43 degrees. The Ice Breaker always brings out a good crowd. Come join in on the afternoon’s activities and support fellow friends and family in Great Falls. At the very least, make sure to give Orbit a hi-five! Happy weekend, All. Cheers!

How was the weather for the race? Thought about it but 3 days prior I twisted my ankle.
