Its e Race!

Thats right folks, we ran a 5k! A whole 3miles baby! Wohoo! The sad, but true, part is it was HARD for us. This being our second race, I feel like we did very well! Its been a great way to get healthy & we like having something to work towards. Our race was in the beautiful Santa Barbara, at 8am sharp! So we sacrificed our sleeping in and woke up at 6 to head out. Our friends Kevin & Lindsay came too. Kev is training for a marathon, and Lindsay is our designated Cheerleader! Chris' mom Linda also ran it with us, and she kicked butt! Kev ran it in just over 21min, Chris beat his first race time by over 5min! I ran it in 24 minutes!

Wohoo! Good for you guys! Looks like we all can't get enough of these races. Horray for 5 K's!!

Horray for running! I love that Chris actually looks high in that enthusiastic picure post-run. You and Lindsay look like sisters. Isn't she the cutest thing ever! I can't believe your legs, I am so jealous. I tried a pair of shorts on like that and I looked like a whale. I'm too short and curvy for those suckers. I'm proud of you guys. Good job Chris! You knocked off almost two minutes per mile since your last run, that is amazing. And Mari, I can't believe how fast you are. I could probably only do a 5k in 26 minutes at my fastest pace.

So I didn't realize how fast your time was until after I commented the first time. 24 minutes Mari? Are you serious??? You kick butt! Yeah we should find a race and do it together. Let us know if there's any 10k's or half-marathons coming up in California!
