Racing Not Running
I never wanted to be a runner…now I want nothing else.
Sometimes I drag Hunni…and he loves it.
Hello I’m Cynthia and I’m an injured runner.
When my ankle betrayed me I muttered over and over in the ER, “Heather is going to kill me.” I picture messaged “I pulled a Heather.” and tweeted…
I was registered for a 10k on April 30th to celebrate Heather and Jen’s birthday.
No backing out of this race. It was a celebration not a competition. I would walk the race just to be there.
Great friends made the day worth it.
We enjoyed goofing before the race as the 10k racers prepped and tried to warm up.
Emily, Melissa and I enjoyed silly antics while the 10k racers were tip toeing through mud. I tried to get a picture of this cute doxie, MooMoo, for Kristina and Caitlin but she was too busy sniffing.
As each friend crossed the finish line I practiced my race photo skills. I think I need improvement…Chris is a blur.
Then it was 5K time. Emily and Heather were supportive and walked with me.
The running bug bit Emily and bit hard. She ran surpassed her goal of running to the mile marker and was soon flying past us on her way to the finish line. Go EMILY!!!
Heather was an awesome race photographer…
No ankle pain…just a few blisters which are a great excuse for new shoes.
The best part of racing with healthy living bloggers friends is we know how to refuel with fun.
The picnic spread was amazing…
even gluten-free pound cake. Thank you to Jen’s friend who made a dessert I could eat and loved every bite.
With great friends not being able to run doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy the race.
