Libby, this post is for YOU!! 🙂
I ran a 5k trail run with my brother and his daughter in Douglasville, GA the other weekend and am just now getting around to writing a post about it!
I’ve been signing up for most of my races through active.com lately-here’s the link:
This 5k benefited an organization that fights against family violence. Great cause!
Here we are bright and EARLY in the morning before the race. Briana, Shawn and myself. I am so not a morning person! 🙂
About to get started!
Here we go! All smiles. 🙂
There’s my bro busting thru the finish line. I can’t remember his exact time-32 something.
That hill at the end of the trail was a KILLER for me! 🙂 My finish time-33:45.
Finally, I get to walk and cool down!
I found someone who had the same Brooks running shoes that I have. Cool!
Briana, my 6th grade niece, got 3rd place in her age division.
Ahem, we ALL got 3rd place in our age divisions!!! What???!!! Maybe there were only 3 IN my age division!!! LOL!
Briana and Taylor. Niece and daughter. Non-attitude and attitude. JK. Well, not really!
Briana performing her flute expertise for us AFTER she ran the 5k and AFTER her soccer game-which I forgot to take pictures of! Bad aunt!
So there you have it. A day of family and fun. I love trail runs because I love running in the woods. This trail run was mostly flat until right at the end, and they graciously inserted a hill. 🙂 The only thing we had to watch out for were roots/stumps (which they spray painted white for us) and horse manure since it’s also a horse trail. The trail was very wide-it allowed me to comfortably pass a few people. YES! I actually passed a few people!
I can’t wait to do another trail run-my next one is June 3rd with my brother again in Georgia!
