5k Run - Us, really! 1

Saturday, October 04, 2008 by , under

Holy cow, we've completed a 5k run today! That's 3.1 miles, non-stop!

We surprised ourselves because we didn't train for it. Faye is not a runner, she'll rather go biking than jog/run. Me, I hardly run, I go to the gym to tone not for cardio training or stamina. And we have completed a 5k run, huh?!

It's the Susan G. Komen Race For The Cure annual 5k run. It's an event to raise money for breast cancer research and treatment.

We learn about this event 2 days ago from our friends. We signed up for the non-competitive run thinking we'll just relax and walk if we couldn't run the whole length. Amazingly, we made it in 38 minutes 11 seconds.

I might not be able to feel my leg tomorrow but the experience and the cause is well worth it. "Might" do it again.

Number
Faye's is 29,490 of more than 30,000 people. Shot taken after the race hanging out on the event ground.

Sea of people.
Sea of people.

Dad + Son
Maria's Army - Team members.

Man + Dog
All kind of people and of course, dogs participated.

Ambulance
Standing by just in case. Sure is one colorful ambulance.
