**Days 268 & 269**

I completed my third official 5k yesterday!  I was hoping to finish it in under 45 min., but I came in at 45:54 -

97 142 F Shannon 39 45:54

However, I did improve time from my last race, which was 48:21, so I'm happy with my time.  And, to be honest, I hadn't been training, nearly enough, so I'm surprised I was able to better my time, at all!  I had to walk quite a few times, but that's okay.  I did the race, and that's what matters.

Oh, and I didn't have to run in a torrential downpour!  It was only drizzling a bit, so it WAS, kind of, a refreshing run!  My mom decided to do the race with me at the last minute, and she did really good, considering she didn't train, at all.  Her time was 50:23 - impressive!  Here's a pic of us before the race:
                                                   Will my extra chin ever go away?!  Seriously!!

My dad and my girls came along to offer support!

I want to send out a big congrats to Colleen!!  She did her first ever 5k on Saturday, and she ran it in 39:45!  Awesome!! (I can't get the link to work right, so when you get to Colleen's site, click on her Home tab, and you'll be able to read about her race!)


  1. Congrats! That is SO awesome.

  2. Shannon - that is awesome! Way to go, girl! So glad the rain held out (for the most part) and you stuck to your guns. You should be super proud of yourself!

  3. Awesome! Coongratulations on beating your previous time by a good few minutes!

    Well done to you both!
