As luck would have it, my first 5k was in POURING down rain. The downpour did manage to lessen long enough for me to run but of course picked right back up with pelting rain right as I crossed the finish line. With all the sheets of rain we had to leave right afterward and thus missed out on all the freebies from the vendors. That was part of my motivation for completing the race! :(
My lovely Mooma came down to cheer us on and watch Addison while John and I ran. Actually, John could only walk thanks to his bad ankle - but he got to cross the finish line with our friends, Brad and Jenny and still had a blast.
She adores this woman....and we definitely do too since she was our live-in nanny for the whole weekend!
The same cow that had Garrett running in fear, Addison found very intriguing.
According to my watch, I actually beat my practice time by 5 minutes. I finished the race in 35 minutes! Not too shabby considering I'm just in the beginning stages of being a "runner". (VERY beginning ;-)
