Race Day !!

Alright- So I ran the Rex Lee Race for the Cure today. I did the 10k. My first 10k, but I just wanted to see where I was with my training for the half marathon next month in Nashville. I ran it in 1hr 1min. Not great, I was hoping for 54 minutes, but whatever. I was totally worked up by the energy of the crowd when I got there and it was crazy crowded. I tried to start in the back so all the speedsters would be in front and I wouldn't be run over. So it started great everyone was running, but about 400 meters into it people started walking and the curb jumping and the weaving in and out started...It was nuts !! It was like that for at least the first 3 miles and then the crowd separated and it was smooth sailing. It was freeeeezing this morning and my sweet family braved it and cheered me on at the start and they were there when I finished. Bry was done though- evidently Presley was being a handful and Knox had started to cry. But I was glad to see them there, it made the race that much more fun !! Don't mind my race face ! I was so stinking cold !

Congratulations Cynthia, I hope to do that someday, but at this point I am no where near ready for something like that, so great job! You inspire me.
