Love the Run You’re With 5K!Posted: February 13, 2011
Good afternoon, friends! I’ve got to tell you, I’m feelin’ pretty great after our 5k this morning. Why, you ask?
Because it was a PERSONAL BEST!! I finished in 28:56! (The overall winner? 14:00. Holy cow.) Friends, I am so excited! I’m really not a runner, and I’ve never finished a real 5K sub-30. This is kind of a big deal in my book. If you’re a fast runner, maybe you can’t understand my joy. But if you run, yet don’t consider yourself a “runner” you know how cool this is 😉
Cory was right on my tail and finished 20 seconds behind me. Emily and Jamie crossed the line in 36:00! I’m so proud of all of us 😀
The course was hilly! At first I was thinking “Oh my word. I don’t think I can do this!” Then, you know what I thought of? This blog. I didn’t want to write I got tried at the first hill, so I slowed it down to a walk. No. I wanted to tell you that I ran well. Therefore, I tried harder. So if you read this blog, I just want to say thank you for helping me push myself!
Needless to say, we were pooped – but we managed to get a decent post-run picture 🙂
I also had to get a picture with the one “I love that I’m with” 😉
Can’t you tell how happy I am? I don’t even care that I’m posting pictures with no make-up, no shower and lots o’ sweat 😉
We also got one free drink at Champs after the race! I was lovin’ my mimosa 🙂
I love the feeling after running a race. I just feel so darn good. (I wish it felt that way during the race, but oh well! 😉 )
Alrighty! Thanks for sharing in my day! It was a great way to spend time with the ones I love 🙂 I’m so proud of each of us!
Enjoy your day, friends! I’ll catch ya later this evening 😉
