As part of the BCS Marathon Race Series, there is a women-only 5k, appropriately named "Girls Just Want to Have Fun." So, of course, we had to take part.
The race team created such a fun atmosphere, and the race was complete with a costume contest, roses for every finisher, gatorade in plastic champagne glasses, chocolate fountains, and delicious desserts from a great restaurant in town. Throw in the fact that it was all girls, and who could say no?!??
My mom, sister, some friends, and I dressed up in our best 80s garb and came ready to run/walk and have some fun.
Micah also came along for the ride.
It really was a great race. It was a little chilly and windy before the start, but it was a great time. Pushing Micah for 3.1 miles (which I had NEVER done before) gave me a really excellent workout...probably a better workout than I was looking for!
Lindsey and I ran/walked together. It was fun, and I was super proud of her for all the fitness she has gained. I was a little proud of myself for keeping up and not leaving Micah in the stroller on the sidewalk to come back for her later :)
We finished and had lots of fun. What more could you ask for?!? We are already looking forward to next year.
