I ran my first race ever, 8k, yesterday. Arrived at 47min. It was also very very hot! Put some pics over at my page and blogged a bit about it.

Awesome job, everyone! We can be so very proud of ourselves :D

I got my second fastest race time, at around 52 min. Had to walk some today, steep hill and HOT tempatures, not to mention the humidity!

Pancake breakfast was AWSOME. So yummy, and foods that I don't get very often any more.

I treated myself today, for finishing my 3rd 5K in 3 months. I bought a running belt...something that will hold my phone, key, and some cash and ID. AND it has a place to attach you race bibs to it.... So nice and functional ( not to mention completely HI_VIS and reflective)

WOO HOO!!

Hope everyone else that was racing this weekend had a GREAT race!!!

Now off to shower!!

LOL Frank!

The only pancake breakfast I ever got was after my first HM and it was not as good as the pizza from the 5k.
