Valentines Race

Saturday, February 13, 2016

Today my daughter (PURPLESWIMMER) and I went on the 5K (3.1 mile) Valentines Race. Her boyfriend stayed on the sidelines, so she had two runners push the Ainsley's Angels Racing Wheelchair. I walked, of course.

I bested my time for the 5K by a minute. We both got prizes at the end...I won 2nd place in my age category (70 and over) and she got one of the raffle drawings. She won a dozen cupcakes from a local baker (YUM...they had some there to sample) and I won a pair of running socks.

It was a fun day! How social and uplifting these races are...I'm always amazed and elated.

    I love races! I need to get signed up for my next one, which is April (not counting the Zombies, Run! Virtual Race in March). Great job doing your 5K!
