5K Race

I decided to try it - run a 5K. I run with Suka almost every night...probably about 1.5 miles or so. Somebody at work wanted to sponsor someone for the Lungs for life 5K here in Greenville so I decided to give it a whirl. My mom went with me but she mostly walked. I came in just over 27 minutes. Although I wanted to win, my goal was just to run the entire time without stopping and I did. So yay!

There were several people there with dogs so I felt bad for not bringing Suka. She could have walked with mom but I had no idea they would allow that. There were also SEVERAL strollers....ANNOYING!!!! Not that I'm against doing that with strollers but c'mon - move to the side. It was the first year for this so maybe they'll let the runners go first next year or something. I got frustrated a little bit tryin to weave my way through the people walking or barely jogging. But hey, I got some exercise and it was for a good cause so all in all, it was a fun morning! Here are some pics...

Everytime I look at your race pics the song from Saved by the Bell when the girls are doing a work-out video comes to my head... "put your mind to it, go for it, get down and break a sweat. Rock and roll you ain't seen nothin yet"
Haha!
You know you know it!
PS - way to go on running the whole race!
