When my very small and precious community has events of any kind I try to sign up. It is a good thing for rural communities. With some hesitation, I signed up but secretly knew I would make it my kind of fun.
Amma pushed Callum-she can really zip around with Callum in tow. I forged ahead to lead the race. Wait, not a race...I forged ahead to the front of the walker joggers.
I was a little shy about the color. I am not one to make a mess or make a fool out of myself in public. I had a few red and blue areas on my white tank top. No problem.
The course was not marked because it was not a race. Fine. I had my watch. I zipped through the course and got to the end and was confused because there were literally no people to be seen. I beat the workers to the finish line. I stopped my watch and ran the course backwards until I saw Motorcycle and Amma.
All in all, it was a very good time. This is a perfect event for 4th of July. The red and blue powder looked neat. Plus, I'm always a sucker for patriotic anything.
Next year I'll do it again and get supper messy in the beginning.
My time was solid-though unofficial since I doubt the course was an actual 5k. Somewhere close to it...but there was not finish line so I ran longer than I needed to. I ran about a 21:50. Not too shabby of a pace.
