My 2nd 5k

I have officially finished my 2nd 5k race. I ran in the Schlotzsky's Bun Run this morning at 8 a.m. It was a lot easier than my first 5k, but there weren't as many hills and I guess I was just more aware of how it was going to be. Yesterday, Mom, the kids, and I went by the expo to pick up my packet and info. The kids enjoyed all the freebies you get there. They even had a jumpy house that was a castle that Lillian loved jumping around in. The Bun Run is held each year in Austin to raise money for Austin Sunshine Camps...a summer camp for kids. The official t-shirt is long-sleeved though, so there was no way I was wearing that to race in. Even in cold weather, I have to run in short-sleeves with all the sweat! So my mom bought me the contest winner t-shirt for the year to wear. It is pink and cuter.

So anyway, I got up and ran this morning. I finished 86 out of 211 in my age group of ages 21-30. I ran it in 29:13. I think I got slowed down in a few places with all the walkers and people with dogs and strollers among us, I would get stuck behind and couldn't get around some people. I was still proud of my results though. Here is the the official website if you don't believe me:

I guess it will be fall before I run another one with the weather getting warmer. I'm hoping to do the Race for the Cure again. It was a lot of fun...hopefully my sisters will be up for it again. It was great having us all together! We'll see....and then maybe next spring I might try a 10k!

That is so awesome. I don't know if I could walk 5miles more less run it. I am impressed.
