I was super excited this year because it would be the first race that I was doing with my walking buddies since this summer. There were lots of injuries over the last 5 months of the year and we weren't able to walk much together at all. We met up before the race in the community center & bundled up to head out to the start line since it was pretty cold.

We finished right around 50:00. It was not my fastest time, but considered how little training I've been doing, I'm super excited. We got our medals, some water & headed inside for more free stuff. They had tacos for everyone, but they didn't sound good to me at all so I skipped them. Very fun morning race!! Looking forward to many more races with my girls this year. Special thanks to Dana and Kim for coming out to cheer us on!
