We Walk, We Run, . . .

The weekend began with widespread thunderstorms all day and much of the evening on Friday.  But, Saturday morning, I joined several of my friends from church for the Skeeter Run, a 5K sponsored by the United Methodist Church.  The storms of the previous evening brought MUCH cooler temperatures to our area and we ended up bundling up in layers and windbreakers.

    (me, Pamela, Veda, Robin, Cindy, Leah, Callie and Rachel)

It also resulted in a very muddy race course!   Callie ran the 5K in pretty great time, but the rest of our group walked the course.

After taking care to step around mud and large puddles on the first lap, we decided to cut our walk short and head back to the house before completing the last lap.

While it would have been great to do another 5K, I decided that 1/2 of one was more exercise than I would have got had I stayed home.  Besides, our entry fee went 100% towards the eradication of malaria in third world countries!
