I am officially a 5K champion, yall.
Last Sunday was the annual Hunger Walk in Downtown Atlanta.
Michael and Julie came with us and we had a GREAT time!
We got down there early for some pre-race festivities:
|Julie, Michael, and I in front of the Hank Aaron wall.|
|Keith and I in front of the Hank Aaron wall.|
|Do you love the shirts? I love them!|
|Michael in the awesome Mustache thing.|
|Julie Mustached up!|
|I'm a little short!|
|Michael with the Mustache (What is WITH the mustache obsession, anyways?)|
|Julie's DELICIOUS sweet potato fries with Marshmellow topping. OMG.|
|No one performed...just local radio DJ's.|
|There were lots of food trucks. Next year we will eat down there.|
Then, it was time for the race!
|I love these pictures of the crowds walking!|
|See those runners on the left? They were already coming back towards us when we were about 10 minutes in. WHAT? Impressive!|
|This is where i had a come to Jesus meeting with myself. I wanted to stop SO BAD, and I almost took out the heifer on the left with the megaphone telling me to keep going. It was good times.|
|Is it just me or is this whole race uphill?!?|
|I'm smiling and strutting cause we are getting close to the end!|
|At this point I was so excited I could have cried.|
I'm actually really proud of my time! We walked about 2.0-3.5 MPH the whole time, and I'm honestly just proud of myself for finishing. It was really hard. A lot harder that I thought it would be.
Plus, I look sexy with that huge ring of sweat around my neck, right?
Yea, I know.
Next time you see me, please be on the lookout for my new bumper sticker that will read "3.1".
