My 5K

Although I ran in a race about 2 1/2 years ago, Sunday was my first 5k ever. I signed up to run in Make Tracks for the Zoo and convinced my sister to join me. I finished in just over 34 minutes, which was slower than I'd hoped but below my "realistic" time estimate. My sister is a rock star and finished in 27 minutes. Running in races is so much more exciting than all that running alone! I'm looking forward to my next one already.

My sis and me after the race...I'll blame waking up early and lack of makeup on my haggard expression :)

All the finishers got ribbons, which was nice...the winners finished in something like 16 minutes. Now there's a goal for the future!

  1. We owned that race! Maybe Amy won't flake out next time, and it can be an all sister race.

    Why didn't I get a ribbon?
