The Race That’s Good for Life 5k Recap

Last Sunday, I ran The Race that’s Good for Life 5k.  I originally blogged about the race here when I announced that I would be running it.

So, on Sunday, my husband and I made the drive to Oak Park and met Molly from A Foreign Land and her hubby before the race. Our husbands were our cheering section as Molly and I prepared for our PRs. Obviously, we were ready to win this thing.

{Note: I don’t keep track what time I finish in which races, so I consider every race I finish, a PR.}

33-ish minutes later, we crossed the finish line! We won! We won!

{Another note: If I cross the finish line, I consider that a win.}

After the race, we met up with Erin from Loop Looks to have our obligatory blogger photo op…despite how sweaty I looked.

Overall, I had a lot of fun at this race hanging out with friends and getting a little morning exercise in. Plus, the proceeds went to a good cause. Now, that really is a win.

  1. That looks like a fabulous time! I love to run and in the past, I haven’t really kept track of my times but now that I started my blog and track my mileage, I also started to keep track of my race times. It’s nice to see if I can beat them, but I agree- just completing the races is an accomplishment!

  2. It was so great to see you out there!! Thanks for coming all this way to support us and the Collaboration for Early Childhood.

    Even if you don’t keep track of your race times, the Internet does! Don’t ever go to Athlinks if you don’t want to know ALL your race times 🙂
