Her Times 5k


Sunday, October 07, 2012

My best friend came to town this weekend to spend some much needed time together and do a 5k on Saturday. We had a fantastic time together this weekend, and this is the second year that we've done the 5k together. It's for woman only and it's a great race to do if it's your first one. It's a completely flat terrain, and it's a nice walk. Last year it was about 50 degrees and very rainy. This year, we lucked out. It was 51 degrees and NOT raining, lol! There were a lot of woman of all shapes and sizes, which is great to see. A lot of them looked liked seasoned runners, but I'm sure some were running their first race. It was a sea of hot pink, and even a few tutus. When did this become race gear?

Here are just a couple of pics...


my friend Rachael, me and Katy, and my BFF Melissa


Katy "warming up" for her 1 mile run


umm, still warming up?!?

And, I would have had a picture of her actually running, except some j@ck a$$ stepped right in front of me as I was about to take her picture.


and, after the race, just to prove everyone survived = )

That's it friends, just a quick post about the 5k!

    I am glad you had a great time at the 5k! It's so fun to do them with friends and family. I think the tutus look kind of fun, but I wonder if they'd be annoying to run in.

    I suppose it is important to warm up the face. Don't want to pull a cheek or eyelid muscle ;)
