I was a little nervous about this race because I'd be running with my friend, Pam.
I'm usually a solo runner and didn't want to hold her back! I think it worked out pretty well :) We had some pre-race fun with Krash from the Columbus Clippers:
I'm pretty sure he thought we were weirdos because we weren't kids. Pam tapped on his shoulder and asked him to be in a picture with us!
The course started out a little tough. It went through the woods and had a few hills. Once we got through the first mile, the course itself wasn't too bad...but the sun was beaming down on us pretty hard. I used MapMyRun app on my phone and it logged the race as 3.07 miles with our time being 27:21 (8:54 average...splits 8:39/9:10/8:53).
We were getting whooped by a couple of ten year olds until they took a wrong turn toward the finish. Pam was crackin' me up the entire time because she couldn't believe they were kickin' our tails! Here's us celebrating before the finish line:
My next 5k: The Color Run on July 20th. Thanks, again, Boo for supporting us and taking pictures!
