Our First 5K Race

Midget and I walked our first 5K race together a few weekends ago!

When my friend asked me to go, she mentioned facepainting and beer. I never really thought we were actually going to be IN the race. I just thought we were going downtown to hang out and drink beer.

I was pretty nervous about it, as I haven't done a 5k in a looooooong time and I was skinny the last time! But, it was pretty easy and I plan on doing quite a few more (as long as there is the promise of beer at the end hehe).

By the way, we didn't finish last. We were pretty close though...

I havent done a walk like that in years. I managed to go the whole way though. Even though I was the slowest in our store, I still managed to come in before a majority in some of our sister stores, which was great considering how woefully outta shape I was.

Yeah, I hate to say it, but I probably would have sat on the sidelines and drank the beer, BUT good for you and your friends. :) hehe!

It looks like that was sponsored by Red Bull? I might have needed a few of those to get through 5K! Way to go, girlfriend.
