Brookhaven 5K

Running a 5K with five hundred other people in your community isn’t a bad way to start a Saturday morning.DSC_0704

If you’ve never run or even walked a 5K before, register for one now. It feels so good to be surrounded by fellow sweaters and strugglers and people just making an attempt to be/stay healthy.DSC_0711

A great resource for preparing for your first 5K is the Couch to 5K program.

You’ll find all kinds of people at these races…elderly people, overweight people, skinny people, fit people, kids under 12, alligators,

Kenyans, and even people in wheelchairs…all of whom may be passing you at some point.

At a 5K, you’ll fit in. Promise.

Joey pr’d and did a 7:11 minute mile! So proud of him! I was proud of my finish too–especially since my race chip fell off and my knee sucks. DSC_0707

Our bud, Dustin, was supposed to run with us but got called away for work. Thanks for watching Finn for us while we raced, Laura!DSC_0714
