Feast your eyes on Melissa, Jim and me after our stunning 5K success! Just click to zoom in on our sweat pockets. I came in at 36:15, so basically, I smoked my treadmill time. I also ABSOLUTELY TOTALLY AND RESOUNDINGLY THOUGHT I was going to vomit the second I came across the finish line. No, really. I was like, "Well, I'm going to vomit in front of all these families taking pictures at the finish line. That's going to be a great way to start my Thanksgiving. I'm thankful for janitorial barf powder." But I pulled it together at the last second and sat down and focused on not up-chucking on the track.
We all did better than we expected, which either means we're awesome, or we don't believe in ourselves. I'm gonna go with the former! It was fun, and Melissa and I are thinking of trying to up our speeds for a race in April.
And yep, it has been two weeks since the race. And you know the reason I just thought about posting these? It's because I just got back from the gym session in which I attempted to run again for the first time in two weeks and got about a mile in before giving up.
Anyway, let's not dwell on my immediate post-race failure. Let's celebrate this picture of me crossing the finish line, Richard Dean Anderson mullet blowing in the breeze!
Thanks to Melissa's hubs, Pete, for the pics!
