Color Me Rad!

#DelayedPost - meant to do this post right after it happened but the days got away from me!
So on May 9 I did my first official 5K in awhile. Of course it wasn't actually timed so I'm not sure how official it was but I got a "number" at least :) I only walked it - for a few reasons. 1) I'm not really a runner 2) my insane sinus problems since January have meant very little time for exercise (or heck just breathing normally) 3) I wore just the wrong shoes and really thin socks the day before the event - ended up walking a LOT farther than I'd expected to pick up the race packets and ended up with a very sore bottom of my left foot. VERY sore. Smart person likely would have bailed but I was determined.
Then due to all the color dust/gel and the spitting rain I had put my phone in a protective baggie so forgot to start the MapMyWalk app. It started about 9 although they let us go in little waves so I don't think we really started until at least 9:10 and then we were walked back to our cars by 10:30 so I think we finished in about an hour. It was fun!
And heck I managed to do a few 3+ mile walks in the week leading up to it so really it wasn't outside my range. Would certainly do it again!
