Neon Dash 5k completed
Monday, September 22, 2014
The Neon Dash was a success! Even with my moms injured knee we did it and it was a lot of fun. I have no idea what our time was because it took so long just to get out of the start line that we didn't bother to look at the time.
Here we are "patiently" waiting...
It was so much fun though really. Even with the ridiculous amount of hills (I swear I didn't think I could run uphill) we made it through. We ran most of it together and then at one point I told her to go at her pace and I would go at mine and we would probably catch up to each other. And we did. There were moments when I just couldn't run for a little bit and other moments where I got my wind back and really pushed. I am really proud of the both of us and we are excited to sign up for our next one and take my sister along.
While running the course we had foam sprayed on us, neon goo of some kind and had lots of fun blacklight stations to take pictures. This pic is immediately after crossing the finish line and while we stood in line to treat ourselves to a beverage...
And this was under the blacklights while we were playing around after and listening to music (there was a DJ and we had a dance warm-up session pre-race that was pretty awesome)
So we made it through the first race and we are excited to do more. I can't wait to get back out there again!
Hope everyone had a great Spark-filled weekend
