Season’s 52 5k

Asher & I ran our races this morning. It was lots of fun. I attained my goal (I was shooting for a 27min finish & my chip time was 26:49) & therefore have 2 updates to my “records” over to your right. Ryan apparently had a good shot of me coming in to the finish but the camera locked up, so this is the best you get.

Asher got a little shy at the last minute, but as long as i stayed next to him (that’s Grace’s foot top right corner) he finished his 100meters with gusto. He “won” a small stuffed animal & a blue finisher’s ribbon. Before nap he said, “maybe next time I won’t be so shy”.

That was the first road race I ever ran without my dad…course it was also only the 4th one I’ve ever run. Oh, & fyi: The Monument Ave crowd still wins for most fun & inspiring….though I appreciated the guy offering krispy kreme from his yard at 1.5 miles, shouting, “carb up for the last mile & a half!”.

  1. CONGRATULATIONS TO JENN & ASHER!!! WAY TO GO, YOU ARE BOTH “WINNERS” IN MY BOOK!!!!

  2. I can see that us Grandfartehers are going to have to stay in shape long enought to run some 5 and 10Ks with Asher (and Grace). Priceless photo! The intensity of the race :)

  3. I LOVE it! I think I’m going to print out Asher’s pic and hang it on the fridge to inspire us all to get in shape!!!
