Third Annual Relay for Life 5K

If you'd told me several years ago that I would be walking in 5Ks - and even sort of looking forward to them - I would have laughed in your face.

And yet, when you say..."But it's a 5K to benefit Relay for Life"...of course I'm all in.

Michelle and I walked in the third annual "Lace Up Against Cancer" 5K here in TinyTown this morning, and once again, had a great time pushing ourselves!

I mean, we were a little skeptical of the weather:



Um, that's the HIGH temperature?

But we knew we'd have to soldier on...we are sponsors, after all!

The day was cool and crisp as promised - okay, actually it was SNOWING for most of the walk - but we were buoyed by the fact that nearly 100 people joined us in the run/walk against cancer!

Woot!

We had a new route this year - through the historical district and by the high school - which was really pretty and different to walk/jog to.

I haven't been training for this race like I have in the past, but I had a time I wanted to beat, and though I was SURE I didn't, I actually ended up beating it by 7-8 minutes, so I was pleased about that! Michelle also had a more aggressive number to beat, and she did that too! Yay!

(The shin splints totally slowed me down. Must.train.more.)

I may not have been fast, I may not have been with "the pack", but hey, I'm lapping everyone on the couch, right?

Exhausted but proud, we had a great lunch at Zuki, a successful mall visit, and a dip in the pool at the Y. Nice. :-)

Here's to our next race!
