Things I enjoyed about the GLOW 5K Friday Night:

*running with my buddies
*Glow in the dark bracelets
*Finishing faster than last time
*Running behind and in front of a man dressed like a banana.
*Whoppers syrup on my ice cream afterwards
*Rockin' blue tshirt

And some things I didn't

*People smoking cigars.
*Glow bracelets that broke.
*Unlit sidewalks
*The one hill on campus
*Having to walk more than I wanted
*Grape flavored Propel

There were 8 or so of us that ran Friday in a night race. I have never done a night race and it was fun! We didn't all stay together during the race but most of us met up afterwards to recap, congratulate one another and eat ice cream.

I am super proud of us. There were several hundred students running and we were older than them, all mommas and we did great! We even passed many of the students. At one point I heard a group of them break off to go get ready for the movies. Remember, the race didn't start til after 9 pm. Then as we were leaving the parking garage we overheard another group making plans to meet at a club later that night. Made me laugh out loud!

Way to go Team CBC! When's the next race?

What did you do Friday night?

Oh pals - I never knew there were so many runners! I seriously meant to leave no one out. SOme one invited me, I mentioned it to a couple of people and as we were leaving work on Fri two more joined in.

I am NOT cheating on W-T-G!

Though, I think my scale is!!

Becky said...

Oh, I know you are not. I wouldn't say I'm a runner but, I think it would be fun to do some of the shorter ones with some of you. And, if I have to power walk a lot, so be it!
I still need to check and see about an MS walk/run in the area....

Well, I would like to have come too but alas we were horsing around again that night - until 1:30 a.m. then had to drive an hour home. That's what we did :)
