Color Me Rad
Well I finally caved and ran my first race. It was only a 5k, but for me that was huge! I hate to run, and can think of a million different ways I would rather exercise. However, when a group of some of your best gals ask you to, I could not say no. So what is my opinion on running now…? Well….I still hate it! It was however a lot of fun, and I am proud to say that I can actually run for more then two min. I am sure I ran the slowest 5K, but I am cool with that. I am certain I will participate in other runs but don’t expect any Marathons from this gal. These things are so fun for building great memory’s, and I love that! Girls you rock! My dad and brother want me to bike in the California Classic coming up, so I guess this will be my year that I get my race on. I guess there will be more blog posts from this wana be athlete to come!
I totally underestimated the amount of people that would be out there. Thinking that people would just notice you, is not exactly the best plan. Everyone looks the same! On top of that your start time is delayed by nearly half an hour so most people think you are done before you have even started. My poor hubby who was there with the kids never saw me cross the finish line. Sorry Babe! I did however see this proud Papa cheering me on at the finish! That was a great memory!!
