Womens 5k

I had such a nice weekend.
First one in a long time where the kids didn't have anything on their schedule.
Melinda, my SIL, and I ran in a women's only 5k on Sunday.
I was so stinkin nervous about this run.
The course starts on a downhill and the rest was basically all uphill, there were two small flat stretches but they were very short. 
My official time was 40:02.
I could have done better but oh well.
I am not upset with my time, I mean there were a lot of hills.
We had fun even though there was supposed to be Lululemon schwag but I didn't manage to get any.
Oh, I almost forgot, I signed up for a Southern Arizona Road Runners membership at the race.
Know what that means?!
I am an official runner.
I even said that to the ridiculously fit pregnant girl who had just kicked my butt in the 5k.
She gave me a pretty good chuckle then agreed that that definitely made me a runner.
Oh Friday, after packet pick up Melinda and I stopped by the Nike outlet.
I went in looking for some new carpi's but came out with a new pair of shoes.
Last week when I had tried on shoes at Fleet Feet they had recommended two different pairs.
Brooks Ghost 5, which I bought that day, and Nike Pegasus, which I hadn't bought just because everyone seems to love the brooks so I wanted to try them.
Anyway, while at the Nike Outlet I found a pair of the Nike's for only $60 so I decided that I just had to have them.
So now I have two pairs of brand new running shoes, I love buying shoes!

Look how cute the tech shirt from this race was.
Plus it perfectly matches my new Brooks.
Race 3 of my 13 in 2013 done!
Happy Monday! 


  1. congratulations, that is so great! 3 races already and it's just the beginning of March. That is awesome! And I had no plans on the books this past weekend and it was so nice. = )

  2. Uphill run! That would not be happening in my world right now!haha I have the Color Run coming up in a couple of weeks and I have not been training. It will be more of a Color Stroll for me. My hat is off to you.
    Cute race shirt. I think the one they handout at my race is plain white.
