Pensacola's McGuire's 36th Annual 5K Prediction Run

Friday, March 15, 2013

Some of my Sparkfriends know that I recently participated in the 5K Prediction Run held in Pensacola. I walked it, along with 16,000+ other people, in all sizes, shapes, and ages...and I should add "costumes." I really liked that I was physically able to do this; it never happened to be on my Bucket List, but I am glad that I have done it and I may go back and plan to do it next year.

Here is one of the little caps that I worked on to help me be less nervous in heavy traffic. I completed two of them.

Here is Sugar Puppy; she proved to be a very good traveler, but it is tiring for our furry friends as well as us to travel for so long.

Here I am just after finishing the 5K.

DS and I after the race.

Here I am as we were waiting for our meal later that day; DS turned on the bow tie...

DS and BIL have done this run/walk for years. I liked the physical activity portion of it and the fact that I did something with my sister. I will probably do some more 5Ks in the future.

    You look so happy there. It is a fun thing to have a great day and do something physical as well.

I love your puppy. She is really growing. Did she get to do any of the walking with you?

Your cap was darling. It is so nice that you have something you can do while traveling. Crocheting is calming for me as well.

This was a spectacular spring break for you. It was renewing and invigorating.
