Get out of the sack sleepy head. This is the first day of a new year. Sure, you have a headache from last nights party. Take 3 Aspirin, Tylenol, Motrin IB or any of your favorite pain killers and you will feel great in 30 minutes. Its time to run again!
Step outside to see what a beautiful day it is. Go back in, brush your teeth, and put on whatever running gear it takes to break the chill. Start a new running streak for the New Year. It won't take long to get to Flagpole Hill because there won't be any traffic except for the other runners.
The New Year's 5 Mile run starts near the Park office at the bottom of Flagpole Hill at Northwest Highway just west of Buckner Blvd. This scenic course runs north on Goforth, left on West Lawther and right onto the jogging trail up to a turn around point at Fair Oaks. Head on back the way you came until you cross the finish line.
