Literacy Run 5k

I really think I would run in a 5k EVERY weekend if I could! There’s just something about running with a group of people for a good cause that just inspires me. Plus I get a t-shirt and maybe some good food. 🙂

This 5k race was in Auburn, Alabama and the proceeds went to a literacy club in Auburn. Me + literacy= happy

I can’t even remember my time-I think it was 33:something. 🙂 It was actually my fastest time so far-you would think I could remember it, but getting up at 4am this morning to work at a gas station has done something to my pea brain!

They had an entire spread across a table after the race: bagels, peanut butter, bananas, more bagels, more peanut butter….. oh, and water. I just snagged a banana because I was going to buy me some DELISH california rolls for lunch!!! Yep, a 5k race, california rolls for lunch, and a book to read. What more could a girl ask for? 🙂

Didn’t get any pictures since I went to this race by myself. The course was through neighborhoods (partly shady). It started out FLAT and DOWNHILL. Can you believe it? What more could a girl ask for? Ooops-I already asked that question. And then……..the hill from

_ _ _ _. Seriously, everyone was walking up it, but not this girl. I ran jogged slogged my way through it and got to the top. Really, I did run up it! And gave much appreciation to God when I got to the top. 🙂

It was a good race and a good time for a good cause. What more could a ….never mind. 🙂

Good night!

  1. Yay You! You are really getting fast! I love 5k’s too! The distance is good, running with others, the fun and excitement! Have a great day!

    • Libby,

      BUT-that is just 1 mile! I slow down when I have to run more! 🙂 I’m going to a running clinic tonight and can’t wait-never been to one of these before! I’ll post about it this week!

  2. I did so well running a couple years ago. Did a couple half marathons (not super fast but I FINISHED and as you know that is the important part, right?) and some 5Ks. Then totally fell off the wagon. Am working on getting back on. Keep posting. It helps the rest of us! :]

    • Angie-

      Thanks! I’m glad somebody is reading my posts. 🙂 I just ran a 5k course this evening that was HARD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I love hearing from you. Let's have a conversation!
