Weekend Review! I'm linking up HereOne Day list for years finally I did it! My family has always been really big in to 5k walks we participate in the Kidney Foundation's 5k walk every year. But until yesterday my nerves prevented me from actually running a real 5k. Titusville put on the perfect event to get me out of my running shell... The Get Up and GO 5k/10k Run/Walk.... Seriously it was perfect, my family got to walk, I got to run and those more intense runners (me hopefully one day soon) got to run the 10k. It is held on the Max Brewer Bridge. Which basically is killer hard to run up and down two times. ( now I am using the word run loosely cause the second time going up it lets face it I WALKED ).
|I didnt take this picture I got it from here but this is that bridge!|
I ran with my great friend Becky and she is seriously amazing. She has two kids and totally kicked my butt. Now this isn't the best picture of us but at least we can prove we were there with numbers and everything.
I finished 7th in my age group with 35 minutes and 10 seconds. I'm not sure how I feel about my time but I'm going with not to bad for no training... I pretty much haven't run more than a mile in a months... and it was on a giant slope. Ok enough with the excuses. All it made me want to do is go faster next time. I already found the next race I want to do its in October. I will beat my time!
It was really great to spend so time with my family. My mom is amazing and so supportive she even paid for me to do the race since we have been super tight with money lately. My cousin walked the whole way with his little man strapped to his chest. It was pretty much the cutest thing
|It was little mans second 5k walk strapped to his Daddy's chest. Hes a warrior baby!|
After the race we MAY have stopped by McDonalds... We earned it right?
