Runnin' With the Lions!

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!

Um, but you DO look cute. And I'm proud of you! Go you! P.S. I like your new layout, esp. the photo of you and Cory... he he.

Wow! 3.2 miles sounds like a lot to me. I'm no runner. I'm very impressed!!
