So what was the race for you ask....."All monetary profits from this race will be donated directly BuildOn and our efforts to build a school alongside the community in Nicaragua, and will be supporting access to education for ALL. " (taken straight from the website Namaste 5k)
The day before, I took the boys to Sesame Place. We met the Grahams there a few hours later (Tommy, Krissy, Jennifer, and Susan). The 3 kids had a blast, and passed out on the car rides home. Sure enough, the four adults were exhausted.
So when Sunday morning rolled around, I was pretty tired from the day before. I really didn't want to get up and run, but I did have child coverage, so I thought I would get out and do my 5k. I literally just ran up and down my street for about 40 minutes or so. I have no idea how far I went, but I know it was more than 5k.
After the race, I had the boys make a sign with me for Kristie Regan McCourt's facebook page (race organizer). Of course I had Jen Graham take the picture. Notice the 5k at the bottom is not in the picture.
