#Xtreme13 is still in motion; today’s edition is about the race life…
Back in March my girls signed up for The Glo Run and asked me to join in. Certainly! The race fell on the same day my Babe was doing the Tough Mudder. His race is a 13 mile military style obstacle course. My race was a 5K (3.1 mile) run/walk. They had a DJ and everything, he got us hyped prior to start and then we did the Wobble and some other stuff after the race was over. The super cool thing is this event took place at night; we took off running at 8:30pm. HOW FUN IS THAT!!!
This race took place down at the National Harbor in Oxon Hill, Maryland. Beautiful scenery but it was cold and most of us weren’t exactly prepared for that especially since it was nice and warm the week prior. One monkey don’t stop no show thus the show went on in spite of the cold weather.
Those of you that know me know I’m nobody’s runner. I tried to prepare myself by doing a little running two weeks prior. By running I mean run/walking using the couch to 5k app. I think I ran about three times a week. It was enough to help me survive this one. I plan to keep at it as my next race is in June.
This was my running crew Jacktosis, Mrs. CPKC, Kdice1 and yours truly MimiCuteLips.
We’ve been friends for 15 years.
We did some walking in the mix but overall not bad for our first time.
I had to capture each one and then turn the cam on me at the end.
