I finally did it. Today I ran my first official race. My school put on a fund raising 5K that we ran this morning; in the torrential downpour. It was actually a lot of fun. My friend and coworker Shelly ran it also. I didn't get as good of a time as I wanted, but I'll blame that on the rain. I'm so glad I did it. I'm definitely going to be running more. What a great sense of accomplishment! (I know, I know, it's only 3.2 miles. But it was still cool). Here are some really bad picture. It's impossible to look cute when you're soaked to the bone.
Shelly and I before the race began. We were relatively dry at this point.
Waiting for the guy to say go. I'm in the blue jacket huddled back there.
And we're off....
Here I come...
My upper body looks so freaking weird in this picture! It's awful but it;s the only finish line picture Cory was able to get so... TA DA!!
I'm drenched, but happy.
We did it!! And we're freezing!
