Hi all! The race went fabulously. Since I wasn’t running it for time, there wasn’t any pressure to try and get a certain time. My friend, Debby, and I decided we would just run it, talk it, and enjoy it. My friend Debby is the wise one who taught me all the calories leak out of chocolate when you share it with someone 😉
Just a note: I’ll be laughing in every single picture I post. We’d be running, and my dad would literally jump out of a bush to take an action shot LOL. Let’s just say, photography is his hobby, and he loves his daughter very much.
It was on a trail that most mostly lined with trees, so it was super shady, however, it was only 60 degrees out! It was pretty chilly until we started running.
It was also a fairly hilly 3.1 miles, with one hill that was very steep – but luckily it was also a short one.
We had a great time, but it was predominantly high school-aged kids running, so I felt all of my 24 years this morning running with them.
You can tell we’re both cracking up here! We were being stalked by the paperazzi haha!
We ended up finishing at an easy time of 30:20. With this time, we didn’t bother with sticking around for awards. Besides, right as we were crossing the finish line, the lady holding everyones’ bib tickets, dropped them all!!! There was no way she got them back in the right order. Yikes…
And I’ll leave you with a picture purely for your viewing enjoyment:
It says, “Shut up and Drink Your Beer!” bahahaa
Next up: 10k on September 19th 😀 I’m super excited for this one. I’ll be running this race with Debby also.
Do you like running with a friend or by yourself? I enjoy both, depending on what my goals are. If I have a goal, I like to go it alone, but if I’m just in it for the fun, than I like to run with a buddy!
