A Race is a Race is a Race

Pre-race
Don't we look chipper for 4:53 in the morning.
It's come and gone, the DesNews 10K was a complete success.

Just in case you want to re-live the run with me, here's a little sampling of some of the thoughts that were going through my head:
  1. T-shirts are too hot. I have never had a problem before, but next time for sure I will be wearing breathable fabric, does wearing real attire make me a true runner?
  2. Running buddies are a must. Thanks JaNae for the work out plan and the company.
  3. Why do I sweat so much, it's so not fair that my running buddies can look like a million bucks at the end of the run and I'm completely soaked. Seriously as Sarah would say...DEEESGUSTING! (Erika informed me that she was just a little damp when she crossed the finish line and that was mostly due to a cup of water on her head. For me, it looked like I had just climbed out of a swimming pool) JaNae says it's healthy to sweat so much...sometimes I wonder?
  4. Why in the world do I have this song on my Ipod.
  5. I hope that camera is not pointed at me and that I am not on TV looking like this.
  6. I wonder if some of these cops policing the route would rather be running this race? Too bad for them that they have to work.
  7. Nap today!
  8. Mile 3 already? Sweet!
  9. I feel so patriotic with my red shirt and blue and white shorts, just call me Lady Liberty.
  10. We hid water in that bush last year for a water drop, ooh and that bush, ooh and that one, wait or was it that one?

totally forgot about the water drops...and IT IS healthy to sweat alot. It's a natural cooling system for your body. People who don't sweat=people who don't have a natural cooling system which equals me being super hot and thirsty the whole entire race.....thanks for doing it with me. I agree running buddies are a must. I look a little to happy in this picture.
