Beat the Heat 5K

Saturday morning, my friends an I ran Kayla’s (Running Through Life) Beat the Heat 5K!


With our bibs before the race!! :0)


Aren’t they cute? Kayla did a good job!!

(I hesitated in posting the video below because they caught the funkiest screen shot of me…seriously?!?  LOL I’ve changed it but they said it could take up to 36 hours for the change. Thanks YouTube. Thanks a lot.)

Ah well – just watch the videos and enjoy!

Here’s a little “mid race” recap!!

Here we are at the end of the race! Sorry for the “Blair Witch” type feel! I was running and it was kinda hard to hold the camera still! :0)  Also, the sprinkler attacked me!!!! Hah!


Woohoo!  Felt great to run that fast!  Haven’t done that in a while!  This was a “test run” for our upcoming 4 mile race on the 4th of July. We keep setting goals for ourselves – we’ll see how it turns out! :0)


After our 5K, we finished running our long run at a much slower pace!  We were scheduled to run an 8 miler so that’s what we did!  We definitely took the last part much slower!  We also enjoyed a gorgeous rainbow across the lake!


Well, all except for this part. Amanda had the great idea to sprint the shadows and jog the sun.  I’m sure we looked rather amusing to those passing by in their vehicles! :0) 

Hope everyone had a great day!!  Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
