I love races. It's always exciting! Lots of people, music, free food (yes!), and for this 5k there were several people with tables set up selling things or promoting autism awareness. Last year I ran the race cold. I did no training to prepare for the race and showed up to the race with a goal to not stop running. (I succeeded.) This year was a different story. I'm training for my 10 mile run (in 2 weeks!!!!) and have been doing lots of running. I keep all my race bibs and write my times on the back. (I like to keep track.) Last year I finished the race in 32:10 and this year I finished in 27:42. SWEET! :) Erin and I ran this race together and that girl can run. I run to keep up!!! :) HA!
Here are a couple pictures.
Before the race. Team Joseph!!!
Jake ended up running with Erin and me. He finished before we did! :)
Stormy showed up! Erin snapped a pick with her niece, Emma. :)
Pancakes at IHop with Erin's parents and niece followed the race. And in typical Ashley Pride fashion, a nap when I got home. ;)
