So this morning my cute skinny butt neighbor Kristin and I ran the "Mikes Mad Dash To Beat Cancer" 5K.
The little stink beat me. Oh to be a 20 something year old again. :0) Okay, I'll at least blame it on the fact that I'm closer to 40 than she probably is to 30. (We won't mention that I truly am a pathetically slow runner, although I did do a 9:16 mile, or something like that!)
I did come in at 28 minutes and 40 seconds (give or take a few seconds), so I made my goal of running without stopping and finishing before 30 min. And it made me feel good when some dude came up afterwards and said that I was the one that kept him going. Wow! I've never been motivation for someone elses running before. Or at least not that I've ever been made aware of! I just feel bad for the fellow that he had to stare at my jiggly cottage cheese legs the whole time.
I love running for great causes, and I love that I was able to do it with Kristin. She's such a great neighbor! Didn't love that I forgot an elastic to pull back my hair though!
Next run....1/2 marathon in Nov! I guess I'd best get training properly since I feel like the 5K today was every bit as difficult as my 1/2!
Oh and by the way...I did a random drawing to find out who gets the WRMK Nonsense goods and Becky T...it's you sistah! I *think* I have your address somewhere, but if I can't find it I'll email ya!
