Race to the Rescue

It's been almost two weeks (of course I'm running behind; it's how things work around here) but I finally ran (mostly) my first 5K. Those who know me realize that I am not a runner. But I am stubborn. Which means I'm determined to beat it. And, once I do, there's a strong possibility I will never run again. We'll see.

Thankfully, I have some super awesome friends who were willing to take on the challenge as well. Once I saw this, it hit me that there was no turning back. Of course, I also "Road ID" and was told there was a chip in the bib for timing purposes. But all I could really imagine is it being used to identify me once someone picked me up off the side of the road after collapsing.

That did not, in fact, end up being the case. And my super friend, Christy, even won a medal. Helllllo, overachiever!!!! :-)

Which brings me to tomorrow's task - The Color Run. Now I've heard this one is really fun and doesn't feel like an actual 5K because there's so much activity going on throughout the race. I will believe that when I see it, quite frankly. But one thing's for sure, it will be colorful. And we all know that's one of my favorite things in all the world. 

Happy weekend, y'all!
