Fargo Marathon Weekend: Day 2

Friday evening was the 5K race! My husband had signed up to walk with me, but he was out of town for business so couldn't attend. Instead, my dad walked in his place (and joked that he got to be 34 for the day)! We ended up walking with my cousin's wife and the three of us stayed together for the walk most of the time. We walked past my elementary school and neighborhoods of friends. So many people were out in their yards and the streets cheering us all on and playing music for us. It was so fun! We were walking fast enough to pass many people, so we were weaving in and out of the pedestrian traffic quite a lot, so at times we got seperated. At the end we got seperated, my dad got ahead of me and I got stuck behind a large group of people and my dad ended up beating me to the finish line! It rained before the race, but cleared just long enough for us to walk. The cooler 60's temperatures were perfect. My official time for the 5K was 49:01, which is the fastest I've walked a 5K! I usually do it around 54 minutes. Next year, my goal is to run it!

Congratulations on completing the 5k. It looked like a lot of fun! Perhaps I will be able to participate in one in the future. :)

A year really does make a difference doesn't it? :)
