The team had really cute shirts, pink for the girls and white for the guys, and we all wore them on race day.
When I got up Saturday morning, I had almost no pain in my foot, which was a modern day miracle; however, I still decided to walk rather than run because I didn’t want to press my luck. I made it through the whole 3.2 miles, but it was the slowest finish time I have ever had, which kind of makes me chuckle. My foot punished me by hurting the rest of the day and weekend.
There were tons of people and tons of pink as always. We had a really fun time and enjoyed spending the morning together.
As a reminder, my college roommate, Melissa, is walking in a 60-mile walk this weekend for breast cancer awareness. Please keep her in your prayers as she attempts to accomplish her goal. She is also volunteering to carry the names of your loved ones with her during her walk. If you’d like for her to remember someone you know, then please check out this blog post and leave her a comment. Good luck Melissa! Love ya!
Here are some pictures for you:
Here are Jackie and I before the race. I had ordered the hat from Etsy and got lots of compliments on it. After we started the race I was ready to shed it because it was getting warm, but my hair was greasy so I kept it on.
There were lots of dogs there and this little one was the first to catch my eye. I loved its doggie sweater.
Here is one of the banners at the tent for Team Christina.
All of the phrases on the banner were on the backs of our shirts.
Another dog - this one and its friend had on pink tutus.
I'm pretty sure The Tide would have nothing to do with wearing a tutu.
Kim, Louwena (not sure if I spelled that right), Jan, Jackie and Me.
I didn't get the dark pants memo apparently
The women's 5K is off to a good start!
There were tons of runners/walkers
Jackie and I thought the shirts for this team were funny.
There were babies along for the ride too!
This one's for you, Tony - with a little less than a mile to go we came across these people blowing Vuvuzelas.
I felt like I was at the World Cup! I heard them before I reached them and knew immediately what they were and I was right!
Here's a closer look!
