Harbor Lights 2012 and a new PR!

NEW PR!!! 26:50 for my 5K!!! YAY! Felt like I was going to DIE, but I hear that's a good thing...I can confidently say I gave it my all.

Harbor Lights is a 5-week race series. It raises money for a local high school's cross country team, and it brings out lots of families. They have a Swim/Run component (1/2 mile swim + 5K), a 5K run only, and a kids 1K. Every week for 5 weeks. Live music, food, raffles. What more could you want for a Thursday night :)

The hubs is doing the swim/run race since he is getting ready for his second sprint distance triathlon at the end of the month! A funny thing happened last week. At check-in the hubs reads a sign that says "1/2 mile swim" and starts saying, "Half mile swim!?! Half mile swim?!?" I'm like, "Yeah. What's the big deal?" (FYI, I am the one who signed him up for this). Apparently the sprint triathlon distance is 1/4 mile swim and that's the distance he has been focusing one. Oops! 

Off the go!

As you can see, I don't know much about triathlons or swimming for that matter...we are learning these things as we go. He ALMOST didn't do it last week, but at the last minute he decided to go for it...and today he did WAY better (still waiting on the official time). 

All done!
Little K is also doing a weekly kids 1k. She is doing great. Today she said she tried so hard she felt like she was going to throw up! Alright! Family trend!!! We are giving it our all!

Next Thursday we are at it again!
This Saturday I am running my first 10k race! Wish me luck.

  1. For all the hand-wringing over the lack of christian louboutin uk movement at louboutin outlet running back earlier this offseason, the Eagles remained patient both in free agency and the draft and added two pieces without overspending at a position that continues to decrease in value gmae jerseys in the pass-happy NFL. Despite a narrative christian louboutin shoes about a renaissance at nfl jerseys running back, teams are still reluctant to invest in a position elited jerseys where the players jerseys store have a shorter wholesale nfl jerseys life span cheap nfl jerseys and a lessening impact - christian louboutin Panettone spiked leather wallet at least individually - on the game. The Eagles, christian louboutin men flat who have limited jerseys their future invested in quarterback Carson Wentz, followed that Christian Louboutin Women Flat formula.
