Blue Bell Fun Run - 10K and then ice cream

Sunday, April 10, 2011

I'm the one coming up on the left, and then trying to get through the two runners in light green. I kept getting blocked so came around the outside.

OK, within 2 minutes I was no longer feeling terrible - it was just the heat and the headwinds that got me. Oh, and the hills.....

    You look like you just finished running around the block, how do you look so great at the end of a race and have a beautiful smile to boot?!

    Well.. since my two favorite foods are Ice and Cream (especially when they are put together), I couldn't help but read the Blue Bell titled 10K run. I'm going to search to see if there's a Ben and Jerry's run anywhere. I'm not much of a runner yet... but that would certainly get me to the start and finishing line.
Thanks for visiting and your words of encouragement...they mean so much to someone like me, who wants to be where YOU are! Thanks again....and good run! emoticon

    WooHoo! Emoticons don't seem to be working for me today on this page for some unknown reason. Hope your week went well. Keep Sophie moving too!

    Yeah...I was wondering how you could speak in complete sentences after a run too. I would be like " gasp, spit 'I .. I...' gasp.wheeeeeeeze!"

    Thanks for the great blog post. You must be very fit since you could talk in a complete sentence after the race!

Well done!

    Good Video. It was hot and humid and headwinds. But the hills kicked my b***! We were late getting there so we ran from the fairgrounds to the start line. I have never lost my legs in a race but on the last hill to the finish line, legs were gone. AND the strollers! geeze, spent more time trying to get around strollers. Love your video, you are adorable!

    Mist of the courses around here are very flat . . . which is kind of funny cause my neighborhood, where I run a lot, is very hilly!

It's kind of hard to imagine running in the heat right now . . .

Can't see the video, unfortunately.

    OK, well, it seems my video didn't all come the end I say I feel terrible - which passed as soon as I'd had some ice cream.
