Super fun morning with Meghan and Mom at the Halloween Hustle 5k (sponsored by Meg’s CC team). I dropped Meg off early (she was volunteering), then went home and changed into a costume. Didn’t tell her I’d be dressing up. I think she was embarrassed! 🙂
Grandma Dory (my mom) did her first 5k at age 69! She “trained” for it yesterday by running 3 minutes during her normal 3 mile walk. She walked most of it today, but had a great time and took the medal in her age group (female 60 – 69). Nevermind that she was the only one in the age group. She won! And wore the medal proudly afterwards!
I won Best Costume! No surprise when it’s high school boys judging. And when not that many people actually dressed up! Though I have to say this I Dream of Jeannie costume was much sexier 10 years ago when I had abs and without my running shirt, tights and garmin with it! Scored a cute pink Brooks tech shirt.
My time was 24:37, which is definitely not a PR, but I was happy considering this is a hilly tough course and I haven’t done any speedy stuff since Twin Cities.
Meg and her friend Mackenzie dressed up as scally-wag pirates!
A beautiful day for a 5k fundraiser! Now it’s time to bond a bit more with Meg with some shopping at the mall!
