Oh yeah! I ran my 2nd 5k race yesterday afternoon. The Auburn University Pharmacy school was sponsoring it. It had some steady inclines throughout and some flat areas. The 1st incline was the worst. 🙂
My time-I think- was 34:30, but not exactly sure. My time in my 1st 5k back in February was 39:52 so I was PLEASED!!! Of course, today I ran 4 miles in 53 minutes-guess I was dragging from yesterday. 🙂
Here’s a picture of my bib.
Here is “moi” before the race:
Here is my wonderful husband who just LOVED going with me to this race! 🙂 Let me explain a little. He’s a country boy (if you can’t tell). He works 6 days a week in another state where he stays while he works. He comes home on Saturday nights and leaves at 3:30 am on Monday mornings headed back. We have 74 acres of land with cows, horses, donkeys. He also takes care of another guy’s cows on about 300 acres of land in a nearby county. Needless to say I was proud that he only made one negative comment yesterday concerning his “Sunday” that was pretty much taken up with my race. He said, ” I’m more behind this weekend than any other weekend.” That’s not too bad is it? 🙂 On a sidenote-he has interviewed with a company back home and goes for his 2nd interview this upcoming Monday (4/2/12). Please.pray. 🙂
I know he is thinking about me-NOT cows! 🙂
January 1st was the beginning of this adventure in running and losing weight, and I’m so.glad. I.started. 🙂
By the way, one of the pharmacy students that I ran with for awhile asked me to come and speak at a meeting for their Alabama Obesity Task Force after I shared my story of 163 lbs to 136 lbs!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 🙂
Thanks to my wonderful daughter for taking these great pictures!
