Run, Lyssa, Run!!!

...this morning, Matt, and my two friends Stevie and Amber and I went downtown to run a 5K for Delta Gamma Center for Children with Visual Impairments. I've ran in a couple of 5ks before like two years ago when I was REALLY in shape and boy...am I NOT in shape now!!! Matt took off and we didn't see him until the finish line but Amber and Stevie stayed with me although I know they could've done waaay better. Matt's sister and mom did the two-mile Fun Run/Walk. I finished in 37.43 and my goal was to finish in under 40 minutes so I was excited about that. I'm going to try to get back into the swing of running so I can do more of these and do better!!! The race was in downtown St. Louise and it was nice and flat with only a couple of slight hills. Here is a picture of downtown and a picture of Stevie, Amber and I in front of my house after the race.




I'm going to go take a nice long break...

Good for you! I'm a really slow runner too. All that matters is that you finish!

Great Job! Some R&R sounds like it's much needed.

I would have died on the corner of the third block ;) I'm no runner.

Yay!!! You did much more than I would ever do. I ran once this weekend to catch a shopping cart. But that is it. I am too lazy! Great job!!
