Hey, at least you can run a 5k! That is more than I can say. Congrats on the great workout for a good cause!

Congrats on a great race!!  Finishing a race is an accomplishment – no matter where you finish!

haha! That reminds me of a 5-mile race I did and it was between me and a guy pushing his wheelchair.  I kicked his butt on the uphills and he would go by yelling, “NO hands!” on the downhills.  It felt like an episode of Seinfeld!

congrats to you for running it!

Good for you!!  About a month ago I signed Fiance and myself up for one in NYC this morning but I ended up having surgery Thursday and couldn’t run (boo – I’d been training for the last few weeks!).  I went out and cheered Fiance on though and had a great time (he ran it in under 25 min – MUUUCH better than I would have!!)

When I ran my first marathon, I got beat by:

A blind woman
A man without shoes
A 78 year old
A man with one prosthetic leg

I felt pretty bad watching them pass me, one by one.  BUT at least I finished right?  So I did better than anyone who didn’t even run!

Finishing is such an accomplishment!  In my first 5k, I was also beaten by a very, very old man with a crazy gait.  It was a bummer, but I had to give him credit for being so quick!

Our church band, in which I sing, did a 5K yesterday.  I feel your pain… literally.
