Cademan 5K

I had another 5K on Good Friday weekend...it wasn't timed or anything so I really didn't consider it a "real" 5K. I also didn't have a camera there because my "camera man" aka my husband had to work! lol

The race was called the Cademan 5K....it was for a little boy in our area who has Leukemia. They had a GREAT turn out! They raised over $14,000!!!!

This is a link to him singing a song he wrote...

He was at the race and he got to sing two of his songs. He really broke my heart. I know I work with Oncology but there's NO WAY I could work with Pediatric Oncology. Too depressing!

I ran with some friends and we were not pushing it at all. I really was not feeling it at all. In fact, I hadn't been "feeling it" all week. I didn't run at all that week cause I spent most of my time taping up stuff and prepping to paint. Then I stayed up until 2 a.m. Friday morning trying to get the bathroom done. It's a pain in the rear!!! lol Anyway, needless to say, I didn't want to get up that morning but I did. I didn't feel the need to push myself since the race wasn't timed. Me and a few of the girls in my running group finished at 28:35 (per my Garmin). Not too bad since we really weren't trying for a decent time! lol



Like I said, I didn't have my camera, but I took a few on my iphone! lol This is Cade singing one of his songs!



They had fruit and cupcakes after the race. The cupcakes were from a place called Jo's Party House...This is the most AMAZING cupcake/cake place in my town! If someone says that the goodies came from Jo's, everyone usually "Ooooh's"! LOL!



These are the girls I ran with! They are from my running group! We went and played around at the park after the race! Haha!



Me with my Jo's Cupcake in my car on the way home! LOL

Saturday, I did a 12 mile run with my running group. I have been debating on running a half marathon at the beginning of May in Beaumont. However, I decided against it today. I'm just going to run the 5K with Kayla instead! I feel drained today. This weekend was nuts anyway....

My brother graduated from the Texas State Trooper Academy this past Friday....

So Thursday at the hotel, I ran a mile on the treadmill! LOL That's all I had time for but it felt great!

Then Friday morning, I woke up and ran 2.5 miles on the treadmill.

We were supposed to be in Dallas after the graduation, but with a change in plans, we got home at 1 a.m. (Saturday morning) and I got up to meet my running group people at 5 a.m. (I slept a lot in the car on the way home) for a 12 mile run. Felt great but it was hard. My knees were really bothering me for a lot of it. I feel worn out now! lol I took a 3 hour nap when I got home! lol

Today, I was supposed to have softball practice but I'm so drained, I stayed home. lol OH well! Tomorrow night is another track workout! Yay!

  4. Nice job with your 5K even though you weren't feeling it! Yeah, I think if you are tired doing a half marathon is probably a good idea, I am usually exhausted after mine! But...perhaps in the future? I would like to do 5K's after my half I think. I am kind of dreading my half but hopefully I can muster up strength to do it! Hope you rest up and that cupcake looks yummy!
