I also had a really fun time this weekend doing a local 5K for charity. One of the really fun parts was that I won. Yep, you read that right. I took 1st place in the women's division and 6th place overall. Mostly it was fun waiting for my kids to ask me if I won (because they always do...) and then answering to the affirmative. That was great seeing the looks on their faces. I am fully aware that this will never happen again and that it's only because the real racers were not there, but it was still kind of fun. 25:28. Not even my best time, but it was kind of a tough course and I felt like I was pushing it pretty much the whole time. There may have even been some dry heaving during the last 1/2 mile. But I thought I might be the first woman and didn't want to lose my spot. So I pushed it and just about puked. Like I said, fun.

|Jodi took first in her age division.|
I also really cleaned up in the raffle winning a bunch of stuff worth around $90 not including my case of toilet paper that I won for 1st place. Totally practical and even my favorite brand.
So what's next? There's another 5K this weekend and then the next weekend a bunch of friends and I are going to do a color run. So...we're making white tutus and wearing some funky knee socks and I'd like to find some 80's style sunglasses. Plus, with a great group of friends, I know that we'll have a blast and come away very colorful! Come join me if you can!
What's on your race calendar?
Any big races coming up?
Ever done a color run before?
Any tips for me?
