We just walked in the race, but we walked fast. We finished in 45 minutes, and we finished #163 and #164 out of 248 people! We were happy with that.
They give out awards for the top three in each age group...we barely missed that by a few people ahead of us :) However, we had SO much fun and we totally want to do it again. I would like to jog in a 5k at some point, and I really felt so good today I think I could have jogged most of it....we'll save that for next time. This was a good starter race to see how things go! I'm bummed that I forgot to take a picture with me and my sister....
Onward now to finish up the semester. Five more weeks of classes to go and one more week for finals...that means a total of SIX more weeks till I graduate!!!! I'm very ready to be done with the program and the business of everything. I will be sad to say goodbye to people and to Frontier Health (where I do my internship and where I worked before I started school)! It's crazy to think about all the work that we will have to start doing this summer. Packing, looking for another place to live, finding a job, finding someone to rent our house, and moving. I think once I'm done with school it will really hit me that we are moving to CHICAGO! I've lived in this area now for SEVEN years, and that's a long time for me. I actually do feel like I'm familiar with Elizabethton and Johnson City. I will feel like I'm leaving my home and having to make a new home all over again.....plus, of course, leaving family is always tough.
Well, off to Saturday chores!
