5K, Not In The Rain!

If you can believe it, it didn't rain. I got up this morning at 6 and it was pouring but by the time we left at 6:45 it had quit. I was thrilled. Granted, it was cold (54 when we came home at 11), but at least it wasn't cold and wet. There were lots of people in Halloween costumes which was pretty fun. One guy dressed up as Frankenstein and ran the 10K. He was hilarious and as they passed under the finish line they announced him as "Frankenstein". NICE.

Drewby and I both did pretty well. Truthfully, we each ran our races faster than we thought we would. I had been running the course in between 33 1/2 minutes and 34 minutes... My time today was 32 minutes and 10 seconds. I placed 50 out of 130 entries. I don't think that's bad for somebody who hates running and hasn't really ever ran in their life. Drew's goal was to run the 10K in 52 or 53 minutes, he finished in just short of 50. Like I said, we were both pleased!

Getting ready to cross the finish line.... YAY!

Stu Pay's wife Sarah and I before the 5K. She won our age division out of 130 entries!

Now we are watching one of the Halloween movies on TV and I think I might take a nap before we go to our Halloween party tonight. Hope y'all have a great day!
