Last week my blog post was about the Mother's Day 5K I was going to do. Well....I did it and it was awesome!!
First, the shirt we received for registering for this race, was an awesome blue with an awesome design!!
Since the "daisy" is a symbol for this run, Mary (on the Left) and I had a chance to get a picture taken where we looked like that awesome flower!
As usual, UP UP and AWAY did their awesome balloon arrangements !!!
Sherri (middle) had awesome eyes!! She spotted us in the crowd of 3,000 prior to the race starting!! It was so fun to have her join us in the corral for a bit ! She and her husband served as two of the MANY awesome volunteers this year!
My race photos were as close to awesome as I've had in a long time!! haha I'm usually good at spotting the photographers along the course so I can at least smile and wave and try to look like what I'm doing is really easy for me to do! This time, I didn't see that person, so they got a shot of me being very intent on covering those 3.1 miles in the fastest manner I could! :)
I wanted to show you a picture of me crossing the finish line... as usual, I was behind another runner/runners in the photo. However, this time you can sorta see me very near that awesome finish line!!
Also, look at those awesome balloon arrangements on each side!
Here I am with two awesome running friends....both named Mary!!
We had just finished the race. Mary on the right came in first place in her division...and Mary on the left had one of her best race times. I had my best time for that run in the 6 years I've done it!! I came in third place in my division. That was definitely awesome.....and I received a beautiful plaque plus a gift certificate from DICK'S!! Now that was over the top awesome!!
This event is pretty much awesome in every way:
awesome post race food and drink (and PLENTY of it!)
awesome decorations on the porta potties!! :)
awesome signs along the race route.
awesome free photos.
awesome parking....and lots of it!
always, always a new awesome charm!!
THE STONE RABBIT and I love the blue daisy we received this year!! One of my goals is to put all six charms I've collected on a necklace chain or a bracelet. They are too awesome to not enjoy!!
The rest of my Mother's Day was awesome, too!!! My son and husband (but mostly my son :) fixed a wonderful brunch!! We did get family photos. . .under umbrellas in the rain!! That was my DIL's idea! It was really fun to do that and such a great way to remember the awesome day !
