Rising Star Outreach 5k

I am sure if you read this blog, you have heard mention of our friend Shauna.  I don't know how it happened but she somehow has this power to talk us into anything, anytime.  Take this past weekend for instance....

She talked Zack and I into running a 5K with her on Saturday.  We agreed happily!  Here is where I throw in the downer...we had NO previous exercise!  Needless to say we are both still pretty sore! 



Either way we still had a blast!  The race was up Provo Canyon at Mt. Timpanogas park- it was beautiful but a cold autumn morning.  Zack and Shauna (the more in shape and fast running type...) ran on ahead and got awesome scores- 24:00 range!  I was slowly trailing along behind and got 32:01!  Not too shabby for never practicing before! 


After the run, we were given a yummy breakfast! The run was the Rising Star Outreach program which helps benefit the lepor colonies.  We thought it was a very worthy cause and a great way to spend a Saturday!

You guys weren't very hard to convince... all I had to do was ask! :) I'm glad you did it with me! It was so fun!!

Hey! I know the lady who started Rising Star Outreach- my dad makes all of her powerpoint presentations and I used to sell stuff at Christmas time for her :)

You picked a great 5k!!

That's a fabulous time for no training! I haven't run ONCE since the marathon...I really need to get with it!

I am truly impressed! I think I would've either passed out or puked from the exertion! Needless to say, I am not a runner!
