Love the Run You're With 5K 2011, Part 1

So yesterday I partook (wow, that's actually a word?), in my first official race as a Pacers Ambassador. With the new duties that this position entailed, I decided to volunteer as well as run the race. Knowing that I would probably want to get home ASAP after the race and warm up from the frigid February air, I signed up to help set-up. Well, I had so much fun with that that I ran the race and stuck around to help tear down! I must say, I had a greater sense of accomplishment doing the volunteer work than I did the race! That being said, I'm OK with the race results, especially for it being in my slow winter months. Finished in exactly 30 minutes....not bad, but not great either. Though I'm proud to say that came without any walking or shoe lace shenanigans.

As a bonus, I was interviewed by one of my fellow ambassadors for our group's blog:

See the blog here!

Now, to just sit back and wait for the official race photos to appear...at which point I will post another update for you all. I have a feeling this is going to be a great year...as far as running goes. Who knows, maybe next year, I won't be signing up for the race as "Stupid Cupid" (AKA single)!


PS - My shin pains of the last few months seem to be officially gone...and just in time too!

That was great Son!
I'm glad you are enjoying your ambassadorship with Pacers and I am really glad that you aren't having any more leg issues.
It was neat reading your responses in the blog too.

Not only do your feet stay Ugg Boots Sale dry but the Thinsulate ultra insulation also ensures greater ease. language learning software It works by trapping air molecules between you and the outside. The more air a material traps in a given space, true religion sale the greater is its insulating value. The microfibers in Thinsulate insulation are far finer than other fibers; they trap more air in less space, which naturally Babyliss Pro 230 makes it a better insulator.
