|27:28 official time|
|(lft to rt) Me, Chris, Chris, Kasey|
It wasn't a chip timed event so we started close to the front. Chris with the blue trim is run buddy's brother. It was his first race :) He did amazing! We all finished very close together today.
At the end it seemed everyone with a Garmin or app was a little short, but I'll just go with it..sub 28 is a great time for me.
This was a fundraiser for a sweet little girl that has been battling cancer. The event had 262 participants! A very nice turn out and the course was only a 15 minute walk from home. Love it!
|Did you ever get one of these pictures - where both feet are off the ground! The timing folks had this pic on their website :) |
Run buddy coming in....
Guess what happened when we were done...
|See me on the right end...I placed second in the female age group 40-49 and won a $20 gift certificateThe gal that placed first in my age group is 42 and ran a 22:01 - kick butt!|
I would have never believed a few short months ago I could run close to 9:00 mi. for any length of time.
I arrived home: sweaty, happy, goosebump covered, ready for a hot shower...ooooh, let me count the ways I love you hot steamy shower after a chilly run.
You know there's a reason I am bringing this up right...
...hubby had run every drop of hot water out of the shower getting ready for work. My cool shower wasn't nearly as satisfying. LOL
I went out for some lunch and a ginormous protein shake for my own little quiet celebration. Who cooks on a PR day, right?
I actually walked an hour while I drank this because I got to thinking about how many calories
might be in this (it wasn't like I ran a half)
- but it tasted so so good
Hope your week is filled with ♫ ♫ happy ♫ ♫ moments and some running!
