Well...We Did It!!!
Emily and I ran a 5K last night.
I spent most of the day wondering if the rain was ever going to let up. Emily spent most of the day making sure she had all the poop out of her before the big race.
It rained and rained and rained and rained some more. In fact, it is still raining.
|We seriously contemplated going to the mall and telling everyone we ran.|
Here we are before:
|I am really getting my dad's chipmunk smile.|
I guess we were a bit eager beaver because we were preregistration number two and three. Who the hell beat us?!
I must admit I did not run the whole way...but I ran most. The course was flat and fast. Half was in a beautiful greenway, a quarter was in a residential area, and the rest was on a busy road. I sucked wind on the road...it was towards the end. A woman in front of me, with a tattoo of a sun on one shoulder and a moon on the other, would stop and walk in front of me. Just when I was about to pass her she would take off on me and run, then stop and walk. I just knew she was fucking with me. After about the fourth time I said "Screw it!" and walked for about three minutes. Then I did my jog walk the rest of the way back.
|She says she only had to wait around 15 minutes for me to finish.|
|I was NOT last.|
For some reason my shoulders and arms hurt today. Was I flailing them around while I ran?!
Oh well, another check for my 101 things to do in 1001 days.
