Mango Days 5K! Part of the tropical triple crown that I did 2 years ago (I didn't get to do all of them last year because I was in AZ) and was excited to do again this year! (It has the half marathon, a 5K, and an 8K) The best part of this race was actually NOT my shiny new PR it was making Ashley wear these awesome Running Partners shirt. She is not a fan of matching or expressing PDA so I knew this would be a perfect birthday present for her and then made her wear it. HAHAHA! I even made sure that she got the Partners side so mine just said Running. Honestly, I am such a good friend. In all seriousness she helped me get a new PR with an 8:26 average which considering my first goals in running (after just finishing) was an under 30 minute 5k which took me a few races to get and now I'm at 26 minutes. She is able to push me and at the end when I almost died (no really I did) she kept yelling at me RUN!! :) Great race!
|Look how happy she is to have on her awesome shirt!!!|
|Never mind she put her bib on so you couldn't see it at all.|
|Always fun to run into Violet and this time she forced Kate to come too AND we remembered a picture!|
|Our cute race shirts at Denny's!|
|Helping me ring my PR bell!|
|And a few illegally obtained pics. ;)|
|This is not a pretty picture but it made me feel like I knew I gave it everything I had!|
