Six Word Saturday


Just changed the number to SIX

Which is appropriate for Six Word Saturnday...

But what am I talking about?  That number on the side for the races I've done.  I just changed my 5k numbers to 6.  I've ran PLENTY of 5k's on my own... but that count on the side of my blog is for certified, real races.  And today, I just did another 5k... a nice difference from my last race of 13.1 miles.

This was the Throo the Zoo race which was fun.  It had a light hearted feel with lots of kiddos running with parents ... & Girls on the Run was there, so lots of little girls with their running partners.  Kids just make me smile so I had so much fun talking to all the kids, cheering them on, telling them they were doing so good.  You say that to a kid & you watch what happens...their face beams... every time...

It started off rainy, then it stopped, then it rained harder (which felt like heaven at this point of the race) & then the sun came out... add in running through the zoo & it was just a great way to start a day.

So, now I'm off to see which race is coming up next so I can keep those numbers going up in race counts...

(Still in my sweaty Race shirt... keeping the visor on.. my hair is a sweaty, frizzy mess)

  2. Congrats on the race. I'm a walker, not a runner. It's fun to see how many steps I've taken, how many miles I've gone and of course, how many calories I've burned :)

  4. Way to go! I wonder at what point in my life I started not believing people when they told me I was doing good. Sigh.
