Coach Mike's Cross-Country 5k

Early this cool, rainy Saturday morning, K and I ran in the 26th annual "Coach Mike's 5k" sponsored by the Athens YMCA. It was misting when we started the race through the woods on the cross country trails, but it was definitely worth the initial discomfort. The race wound through trees, bridges, and fields and was full of ups and downs. This made it a bit more difficult than I had anticipated, especially when you factor in the slipperiness from the rain! We were accompanied by local runners and YMCA volunteers/workers who were very encouraging, cheering us on.  It was a good time and a great way to start off the weekend!

I still totally admire you for all the running that you do. I'm sticking with dance for exercise b/c I'm no good at running!

AC, you are both amazing dancers, so no harm in sticking to that! Your comment did make my chuckle though! Running was kind of an acquired taste, but I do love it now!
