I did my first race! Alexis, my coworker, and I signed up for it 6 months ago and the day finally came. We didn't have any high expectations. We just wanted to finish it.
Ernest was our babysitter/photographer. Lina was our cheerleader. She got tired apparently.
And we did it! We finished!
And felt great afterwards! In fact we signed up for another race once we got back to work on Monday.
FYI- The Shun the Sun 10k is a great event! We even got a few more coworkers in on it for next year.
