A week ago we did something unthinkable. On a Saturday morning we got up early. It was painful. It was agonizing. The alarm went off for me at 5:30. For my sister, it went off at 5:00. I'm not sure about everyone else, but I know all the alarms went off well before 7:00 a.m.
You ask, "Why, PharmGirl? Why would you do that? Why would you be so crazy?!" I'll tell you why. We had a race to run.

and we are all insane!!"
I totally thought Beth was going to snag an award. She has really been working on her speed & it has really paid off by shaving almost four minutes off of her 5K time. But alas! there were some speedy chicks at this here race & we were not any of them. But that's ok. We had other things to celebrate:
Beth - a new personal record
Steph - her first 5K! And she ran the whole distance!
PharmGirl - I didn't die!
Becky - her first 5K!
Carol - her first 5K!
|Carol, Beth, PharmGirl, Becky, & Steph|
We had a blast. It was so fun having racing buddies. We're going to do it again. Anyone want to join us? And it doesn't matter if you walk or run or crawl - the more the merrier totally applies here!
