Run For Your Children, For Your Sisters and Your Brothers...

This past weekend I ran a 5K for the first time in... damn, well, probably since I was a kid. I'd walked 5Ks back in Pennsylvania for a few years in a row before we moved, even carrying Gwen for at least one of them, but I hadn't run one.

A few months ago Trav told me it was a goal of his to run a 5K, and that he wanted to train for the Pride5K. How could I say no to that?! 

I've talked before about the training we've been doing (and how it was making me slightly miserable), and then the week before the run, I got a cold! Not ideal. 

That said, there's a certain lift that comes on race day, and Pride in particular is so fun, loving, and supportive. I adore everything about Pride, about the whole community. 

We ended up doing really well! Finishing at 35:48 on my chip. And I can't believe I'm saying this, but... I'm considering doing it again next year!

Happy Pride!!
