Panther Pursuit 5K...

I participated and completed my very first 5K this past Saturday back home in C-Town with one of my good girlfriends from high school, Jayci!

I'm hoping for a different mix of people though on my next 5K, since it was sponsored by the Community Collge most of the participants were 18-20 years old and athletes.  The entire baseball, track and field and men's basketball teams ran...yeah, not fun!  Ha!  But I stuck to my pace and was determined not to walk one single step and I DIDN'T!  Go me!  Jayci stuck with me the entire way, even as the girls in her running group past us on the second half when we were still a good 1/4 mile from the halfway point, she is such a good friend!  I even told her to go at one point, but she said no!

Here are some pictures to document the day!

After the race Jack and I went downtown and enjoyed the Artist Alley festivities and watched the parade!  It was a great day indeed!
My next race/run (because I don't really consider them races - well I'm not racing anyway) is in November - Turkey Trot here I come!
