Crime Prevention 5K!

This race was so much fun! Except during the run part lol! Katrina, Christina, Laura, and I all had a goal to finish under 30 minutes. Not a very reasonable goal when the heat index was 110 degrees! When the gun went off...we all shot off! Big mistake for me! I started out waaaay too fast. I was trying to keep up with Katrina...who looked down at her Garmin and declared that we were running a 7:30 pace! We hadn't even hit the half mile mark yet and I had a stitch in my side. I ended up having to slow down and lucky for me Laura wanted to slow down too. Christina passed us trying to catch up with Katrina. Laura and I were miserable the whole rest of the run! It was so hard to keep going...I wanted to walk sooo bad. But we didn't...we ran the whole way and even were able to sprint to the finish line. My time was 31:48. Not my best (31:32) but not my worst either. The thing is that I knew I was starting out way too fast...and if I had run at my normal consistent race pace, I would've made around the same time. Katrina and Christina made their goal...they are both awesome! Katrina finished in 28:17 and Christina finished in 29:14! I was sooo proud of them!!! Maybe one day I will be able to finish under 30 but for now I am proud of my 31 and 32 times!

Anyway, we had a lot of fun! We dressed up really silly and it was fun hearing everyone's comments! And running under the finish line was fun...they called us out because of our rainbow socks!!! Here's some pictures!

Me at home before the race! I look cute, right??!!


My running girls! Without them, running would not be as fun! Christina, me, Laura, and Katrina!


Yep, we are silly!


Ready to conquer those 3.1 miles!
