Ahhhh, Sunday......Long run day! 15 miles on schedule and 15 miles were done!!!!! I had 2 friends joining me which made it that much more fun!!! Annnnndddd, made the miles go by faster too!!!!!!
Ok, but before we break down the run...... remember my post Saturday of all my firsts?!!? First female in a 5k---first time ever! First time winning $$$$--first time EVER!!! First time ever running a course without someone ahead of me to follow because only person ahead of me left me in the dust?---yes, I had to actually pay attention to the signs on the course!!!! Wellllllllll..... guess what?!?! Official times were posted, and I have another first to report!!!!!! First time ever having a 5K time in the 24 min range....yes, it was 24:59......but yet, 24 on the clock!!! Whoop!! Whoop!!!
We all couldn't resist sitting for a picture in Santa's Sleigh!!!! :D Love the Georgia license plate!!!!!
Above is my friend Brandy and I..... Brandy rocks! Not only does she put up with me ALL week long at work, but then she gets up at the break of dawn to run with me!!!! And, she is usually an evening runner!!! She is the BEST! ***secretly, I am converting her into a morning runner-- don't tell her!!!! he!he!****
Above is my friend Rhonda..... she is awesome!!!! Today was her first 15 miler and she rocked it!!!! Honestly, I think she could have kept on running!!!! She didn't look tired at the end at all!!!!! She is planning to take on her first full marathon this year too!!!!!!
