My sister and I have decided to get back on the horse and resume our "One 5K Per Month" Challenge, so we started off the year with a bang by doing the Resolution Run 5K again this year.
What fun! It was quite chilly (43*, which for us South Texas folk is the heart of winter) but we had our winter-ish gear on so it wasn't too bad.
Last year we did the 2 mile fun walk, but this year we did the whole 5K. Our plan is to RUN the thing next year. We finished with a time of 54 minutes, which is pretty good considering it usually takes us 25-30 minutes to finish a mile. I really need to keep track of our finishing times from now on...
Here are some pics from the day:
|All bundled up - don't see that very often!|
|LOVE this sign! Made me think of my Forrest pup!|
|We stepped onto the course after everyone was finished to get our finish line pics|
|Toasting our success with the Resolution Run champagne flutes|
|This is just so wrong....but SO funny!|
|Way to go, Chris!|
The last photo - this guy's name is Chris. I don't know him, but he inspired me nonetheless. He walked the entire course then ran the last bit to the finish line. I don't know his story, but I am so proud of him for getting out and doing this 5K. Like they say - every journey begins with that first step. Chris, good luck on your journey - you are not alone!
My blog buddy, the amazing KC of "the original" 140 Point 6 Miles...Of Awesome! commented on my Facebook that I should do a 5K a day now...only fair, since I kinda bailed on her "Get Off Your Booty" December mile-a-day challenge. I did great up until Dec. 24th, then EPIC FAIL! I'm not sure about the 5K a day part...but I'll do my best to get out there and keep movin'!
Happy New Year, all!
