5K Race with daughter ~ Can't ask for a better morning

Sunday, June 16, 2013

It is Father’s day today however it felt like Mother’s day for me. I ran a 5K race around the Detroit Zoo with my daughter, fellow sparker www.sparkpeople.c

My only goal was to run the entire race non-stop. Okay…I’ll be honest, my other goal was to beat my daughter. emoticon Marilyn was 10 feet ahead of me around mile 2 ½. I kept thinking at that point it’s “mind over body” so I kept pushing it. It was an incredible feeling to cross the finish line and a wonderful memorable moment when she ran into my arms and hugged me. The poor girl, if she only knew how sweaty I was. emoticon

I don’t have the official time yet but I ran a little under 29 minutes and finished 45 seconds after Marilyn.

After the race we had a free pass to go into the Zoo. It was a wonderful morning at the Zoo. Here are some fun pics:

You can't miss me with my neon yellow socks!
