My friend Meredith and I ran the Susan G. Komen 5k Race for a Cure last Saturday, and it was a perfect day for a race!! It is a great cause, and the weather was awesome. The downside: there were thousands of people there and it wasn't organized well at all. I've never been to a race where I had to stand in 4 lines to pick up my race bib, my timing chip, and my t-shirt. You heard right, 4 lines. Anyways, I tried not to be a negative nancy about not even hearing the instructions for the race until the gun went off and people started moving. haha, talk about a race to remember. No time to be nervous!
Meredith and I at the start/finish line. :-)
My biggest fan cheering me on. Love it. Yes, this race actually ran past our house twice!! How could I not participate? It was kind of awesome; except for the fact that our house in on a monstrous hill. All in all my goal was to come in under 30 min, and I came in right at 30:01 (I'm almost sure). So, I call that success. Not a bad improvement over April's 5k Fools for Fitness! I had to walk a couple times in that one.
Yes, my boy is wearing a camo hat with his Gator track suit over his pjs. :-) My husband is the bomb.
