Third Annual Sweat Your Thorns Off 5k

Many thanks to the The Boring Runner for taking the time to host the 3rd Annual Sweat Your Thorns Off 5k over on his more about it here.

I've had a doozy of a summer with new acid reflux issues, etc...and then on top of that I was knocked out of the running loop by back-to-back viral infections.  Luckily I had this 5k to motivate me to get my butt out and run.  It was humbling to be so slow...and it was seriously funky humid...but I got in my 5k which is the longest I've run since my half-marathon. 

After I was done I felt like this...

...but put on a happy finish line smile!!!!

It felt great to stretch my legs...can't wait til the rest of me catches back up!

Try to avoid the fact that I'm wearing the same running outfit as in the last post...I actually do own more than one set of running clothes!!! And the matchy-matchy hat thing...coincidence.  I didn't realize I looked so dorky when I headed out, & my husband had the good sense not to mention it ;)
