"Fun" Run

I recently was able to run my first 5k in about 3 years. I was so nervous leading up to it. I was so tired the day of the race for many reasons but one of them was I had to get up at 6:30 and be ready to jump in the car and drive to the Civic Center at 7am! I am not much of the early riser and when you add staying up late to the mix it sometimes does not work out very well.

I enjoyed my run. I was so tired afterwards but there was not time for sleep! Texas Tech was playing and I had to watch that game. I enjoyed fun time with friends and my mom and cheered the Raiders to a victory against Kansas.

I ran my 5k in 33 minutes!! I was so proud of myself. My body felt like it had been hit by a bus. I am not sure if it was running on the bricks or just the fact that your always run faster and better in a race than you do when you just run for "fun." All in all I had a great run and supported a great cause Breast Cancer.

I have a race coming up on Saturday. The Hub City Mud Run. It should be a fun time. I am a littler nervous because if y'all know me at all you know I am VERY girly. I am not much for my body to be dirty and running in mud just doesn't seem that appealing. I know i will get dirt under my nails, in my hair, in my ears and all over my face. It should be a fun time! I will let y'all know how that goes. I am very sure my mother will take lots of pictures to document this dirty occasion.

Lovely picture taken by my wonderful friend Tori. This is how tired I was. This picture makes me laugh!

Run group!!! Love these women very much! They keep me motivated with my workouts!!!
