Glow Run

I joined my childhood friend last weekend for a 5K run with our husbands and 4000 others.  The run was to benefit The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society Team in Training program.

This is my "Where's Waldo" picture.  I'm in it, can you find me? 

This was the largest run I've ever participated in, but it was a blast.  KC Running Company did a great job of managing the event.  If the GLOW RUN comes close to you, you should participate! 

Mitch and Shelly, Daryl and I
Outfitted with "glow" before the race.

Hubby and I had our personal best times, which I was totally surprised by.  The first mile of the run was spent weaving in and out of crowds and trying to find space to run.  It was a flat run along a road by the river that was covered in glow gear by runners losing their "bling".  It was only my 4th time to enter a 5K, but it was by far the funnest one yet.

We have been friends since 3rd grade.
The best part of the weekend was hanging out with friends.  I've known Shelly since 3rd grade and we pick up where we left off every time I see her.  It had been 9 years this time, but I'm not going to let it be that long again.  We only live 2 1/2 hours apart, why haven't we seen each other more often?

Oh yeah, it's real
I have had a blast training for this 5K with my husband.  Running is more fun with friends!

Now to keep this running thing going,
