Anthem 5k 2016

This past Saturday, I paced my friend through her first 5k since having twins last fall. Her goal was to finish in under 45 minutes and we finished in 44:45, which is a PR for her! If you had told me that just over a year after starting to run that I would be doing this, I would've laughed in your face. It's amazing what you can do when you put your mind to it!

Sprinting to the finish. 

Our friend Katie from grad school was visiting this weekend and she also ran it with us. It was so great to see her and I'm really glad she came! We went to her wedding last fall and it was nice to be able to spend time with her. 

 We ran/walked the anthem 5k Fitness Classic in Louisville, along with about 7000 other people. It's one of the largest timed 5k's in the nation and it was nuts downtown! The three miles flew by and the next thing I know, we're passing Batman and the Joker and crossing the finish line.  

I usually run by myself because I don't like to chit chat since I feel like I sound like one of the Williams sisters playing tennis but we had a blast chatting about life and such. Mary and I are already planning the next race we're going to do together.
