Race Weekend

23 Oct

Since we all trained together for the 10K, we of course had to make a huge deal about everything leading up to the race. Loren, Ryan, Sarah, Bryan, Karissa and I went to get our bibs together and check out the expo. We all spilt up for a little bit since people had other commitments. But Loren and I went to Target, with Ryan in tow, to get matching outfits.

We had a sleepover too. Why not be over the top?

We started off the morning really excited and happy that the weather was better than expected…..

Right as we go to the starting line, it started to sprinkle.start

Just a few minutes into the race, it started to pour. It just got worse and worse.

But the best part of the race was all of our friends who cheered us on. They were all over the route under umbrellas making it really fun. Ally even made signs:ally

By the last mile, I was freezing cold and getting wind burn (is that real?). It was so awesome to finish and be proud of ourselves though! My sweet 10K team even ran the end with me even though they had finished already.afterWe celebrated by taking really warm showers and being lazy for the rest of the afternoon. Then we had a fall celebration dinner with some friends and downtown neighbors. It was one of those weekends that you hope to repeat.
