Hi Amber,
Nice pics! I just love your smile
How did it go? Looks sorta overcast there, did it rain? What was the temperature that day for you?
Did everyone who ran, make it all the way?
LOL
I'M DYING HERE FOR INFORMATION!!!!
I'm sure you had a good time, but I'll go ahead and say, I hope you did.

I didn't rain. It started to sprinkle after the race but it stopped. It was around 60. Far as I know everyone made it ok. I ran 10.31minute miles. I finished in 34.17 minutes. My friend finished in 43.22 at 12.47 miles. He won 3rd place for his age group and I won 3rd place in my age group. I am older than he is.

Woohoo Amber! Look at you girl! It's hard to believe you were ever at your starting weight! You must be so proud and a great example for your kids.

Good job Amber! So happy for you. Your lifestyle is completely different from before. Awesome, you go girl! You are an inspiration to me. I will be happy to walk 3 miles, much less run them one day!

Doing the happy dance, with my feet anyway.

Hi Debbie
do your best and that should be good enough no worries
My hubby and son ran in a 6 K a long time ago and my son did well got his picture on the front page of our town newspaper
My hubby was slow even then long after the race seemed to be over I was waiting there he was all alone coming in dead last . I was relieved to see him even last was a victory for him .. he had the excuse he worked the night shift the night before But he is really rather slow anyway slow twitch muscles or something he has great endurance though .

Thanks Kim and Judy! I'm excited. It's for dogs too called See Spot Run. I'm taking a picture of Li Abner along with me. He sure walked many a mile with me so he gets to go along in my heart.
