Yesterday was the third annual Frozen Zucchini 5K Snowshoe Race/Adventure. We didn't have enough snow, so it became a foot race. Our area was under a sleet/ice advisory, so I was praying that the rain/ice would hold off until the race was completed. I'm happy to say it was a good start for me for 2013. My goal was to finish in under 45 minutes, and I did by a couple minutes! I met another woman at the start line who had the same plan as me: walk some, jog some, walk some, jog some. So we kept each other company for most of the race. Both of us have the ultimate goal of jogging an entire 5k by year end. We made plans to meet at another 5K in May. The proceeds of this event benefit a local community garden which grows vegetables that then get donated to our local food pantry. So here I am with the race mascot, a zucchini.
