A Snowy 5K...

...yesterday was the annual 5k at work. It was also Jen and Angie's first ever 5k. All Saturday afternoon it snowed....and snowed...and snowed but Jen, Angie, Maggie and I were all hardcore and showed up despite the snow.


The race started and Jen and I stayed together and Maggie and Angie stayed together. The first .25-.5 mile part was icy because it was underneath trees and the sun hadn't gotten to it yet. Other than that, the course wasn't too bad. Oh and it was totally flat which is always a bonus!


Jen and I did a good job alternating between walking and running. Her goal was to finish in under 45 minutes. We crossed at 46.08, which in my opinion, is pretty great because that's still under 15 minute miles. So she's right on course for the Hospital Hill Half.


After we finished, I jogged back to find Maggie and Angie. They were almost finished and we all walked in together. I am so proud of these ladies! They weren't scared off by the snow and totally rocked their first 5k!

Awesome job ladies!

You are better than me, girlie! At the first sight of snow, I'd have headed back to bed!
