We Ran Surf City

by This is Carrie on February 4, 2009

Races are addictive.
Surf City 5K results: 26:23 placing me 15th out of 290 in my age bracket.
Can I get a Woot Woot!

Princess caught the bug too and ran the Kid’s Mile. We told her it’s not about winning, it’s about having having fun.
We saw she really took this advice to heart when she ran by us at mile .75 holding hands with her new friend she met on the course somewhere between mile .25 and .50.

First of all, you rock. Seriously
You are turning into an athlete! And second…of COURSE Princess is holding hands with a fellow runner. She is Princess :)

Great job.

Great job! I’m feeling the urge to run again but I’m far from a 26 5k pace – I’ll start walking the dog first

Good job to Princess too, I’m glad she had fun

You didn’t just run in the race…you dominated. And you’re right, it’s addicting, but SO MUCH FUN!

Carrie, I’m so glad that you are able to catch the running fever. I on the other hand CAN’T run! It would kill me with my fibromyalgia (among other things). I’m so proud of your finish though. That’s great. I bet you really feel great afterwards. And here is a big WOO HOO for you!~Shelly!
