I love going to races, 5 and 10 K's (one day longer ones)...but today was one to remember. It was the most fun I have had at any I have done. Maybe because I grew up here and The Washington Redskins are MY team :-) They were everywhere! Players, players families, fans. Everywhere you looked was burgundy and gold. There were a few Eagles, Cowboy and Steeler fans there dressed in their gear, but the burgundy and gold WAY compensated for the few of them.
Here I am fueling up before we go:
The had an opening ceremony with Sportacus from the kids TV show, Lazy Town. Meghan was beside herself, LOL. She loved him as a kid. She got tons of pics of him doing his handstands and jumping around as he geared the crowd up to get ready to go and then some of the two of them and she got his autograph on her race bib. I think she was 5 or 6 when she liked him and she's 15 now.
We got to hear The National Anthem and Hail to the Redskins by the Redskins Marching Band
We got our picture at a giant Redskin helmet
and with "Chief Z" The oldest and longest term Redskin fan!
The view was beautiful and part of the run was running by the water at the Harbor
There were some decent hills, but overall it was a really nice run! Here we are at the finish:
My Garmin clocked me at 44 minutes which is 3 minutes less than last time. Their clock said 48 minutes (it was not a timed race). I have a long way to go to get faster, but I WILL get there!
I will add my number to my growing collection of race bibs!
It was an awesome day with some awesome friends! Next up the Turkey Trot on Thanksgiving morning.

Carolyn and Amy have always inspired me! I have followed them on Facebook and done challenges (although I didn't always remember to post my results) with them, so I was very excited to see that they started a team here!
I've learned so much reading Carolyn's blogs and her progress has blown me away. I want to grow up to be like her, LOL. And Amy is awesome too!
I'm excited to start and to be Fierce by February!
Thanks much to you both!
