Fargo Marathon Weekend: Day 1

I've been home from Fargo for just a few hours and am still on a high from the weekend events! I had so much fun participating in the 5K and 10K and cheering on fellow participants, too! Since the weekend was just so full of fun, I'm going to write about it over the next few days.

Day 1: I got to Fargo on Thursday after a long drive from Omaha through a lot of construction that caused delays turning what should have been a 6 1/2 hour drive into an 8 hour drive. Once I got there,  I headed over to The Fargo Dome to pick up my packets and check out the expo which was full of every kind of product a runner would need!

  Picking up my packets!
 Between the two race route maps that I was going to participate in.

T-shirts, bag, and bibs for each race! My 10K bib said "Full Marathon" on it! We went back in the morning to check it, but they had run out of 10K bibs, so printed the last few on Full marathon bibs! I guess because my last name starts with a "W", mine was one of the last to be printed!

I wasn't too pleased that the 5K shirt (and medal) says, "Uffda" on it. For those of you who don't know, you can read about the phrase HERE. Other than that, I love the shirts and the bag is nice, too!

Tomorrow I'll write about my 5K!

You said that you have lost weight so far without a real exercise plan. Was it hard for you to do these walks? I'm getting back into an exercise program, and I'm finding that I will have to build up to the speeds and distances that I used to do. It's a little discouraging, but I know everyone has to start somewhere.

It looks like you had a great time!

Tammy, I don't have much of an exercise plan, but I do walk quite a lot. I didn't have a problem doing either the 5K or the 10K. I'm a little sore still today after doing them back-to-back like I did, but I'm feeling great! :o)
