Not only was the 10K great, but the rest of Father's Day was awesome too! My parents came to watch the race, it was so fun to see them there when I was crossing the finish line, I felt like a little kid again! After the race we made our way over to the Cheesecake Factory where my brother and niece met us for brunch, YUMMY! I had THE BEST eggs benedict and french toast, soooooooo good! Then we stopped over to REI and I picked up some new GU flavors to try out.
As if that wasn't enough of a great day, when I came home I checked my mail (from Saturday...always behind on that stuff...LOL) and there was a random package in there. So I opened it up, and there was a medal in it from the 5K from the week before. Immediately I start thinking "oh crap, they sent the medal to the wrong person, I didn't get a medal" until I read the letter with it! I finished 3rd in my age group! Woooo hooo! I got a medal!!! Now I REALLY feel like a kid!!!
I have to say, this whole running thing is turning out to be one of the best things I have ever done! Yeah for running!!!!!!!!!
