Albany -- Well what do warm Chili and a 5-K run have in common. Well Not much, but that didn't stop runners at the YMCA's annual Holiday Chili Run.
Saturday morning, runners of all ages competed in 15-K and 5-K races.
After they crossed the finish lines, runners then dined on bowls of victory chili. But 12 year old Lindsey Langstaff was focused on winning, not eating.
"All I was thinking was I got to win. Just hurry up and win," says Langstaff.
Money raised from the Holiday Chili run will go to support youth sports programs at the YMCA.
