You have to love a race that has chocolate waiting for you at the finish line. My friend, Kristy, called me about a month before this race asking if I had registered and saying that she wanted to do it and that it would be her first 5K. Well heck yeah, my response was “I’m IN!” We headed off to Big D at the butt crack of dawn to get ourselves parked and ready (you don’t want to run late to a race that has 12,000 runners registered!), found our way to our corrals, and that chilly morning my friend completed her very first 5K, I PR’ed mine, and we enjoyed our reward of hot chocolate and fondue. In her car. Because we were freezing. Ha! We did, despite the cold, manage to get before and after pics.
Kristy has since completed her 2nd 5K (why didn’t I get a picture of us?!?!) and I have a feeling there will be many more. SO proud of you, girl, I’ll “sparkle” with you again any time!!
