Freedom Run SUCCESS!

September 12, 2009

The Freedom Run was awesome….a huge success!  My running partner Cathy and I beat our last time of 58 minutes by 3 minutes!!!  We did a little over 5 miles in 55:10.  WHOOOO HOOOO!!  We probably could have done faster, but it was quite warm and humid which slowed us down a tad.

Shout out to my bro Eric!  He was unofficially 16th place for the 5 mile race as of end of race time.  We will have to see the final results.  Pretty cool!

And here we are coming up the last hill at the end of the race, it was killer! So glad we trained on the actual course.  I heard many people around us saying “ugh, didn’t know there were so many hills!”  HA!
