On Sunday I got up early to drive over to Alameda to participate in the See Jane Run 5K. There’s also a half marathon that takes place. See Jane Run is a women’s sporting store sort of like Lululemon & Lucy who sponsor these events for women (although men are welcome to participate).
We got to the start line pretty early since we were told that parking could be an issue. We got there at 6:30am & it was freezing. We waited around an hour and then they had a 80’s music warm up which was fun. Then it was time to get my 5K on. I wanted to beat my previous time of 53:07 which was back in November during the Davis 5k race. I figured that I had walked a lot more and lost weight so that I would be able to do it.
You can’t tell but I was freezing in this picture.
My mom took this picture from the back. I can definitely see a difference in my body especially in my legs.
Great views of the bay.
This lady was running the half marathon wearing these shoes. What?!?!
I finished the race in 51:20 (yay beat my previous time!!) and then I got a pretty medal.
The real reason why I participated - chocolate & champagne. I thought we would get a glass and be sent on our merry way. Boy was I wrong. Champagne was unlimited. I can’t even imagine how many bottles they went thru. I only had one glass as I had weigh in the next day.
Happy that we finished and got our treats.
Things got a bit goofy. I blame the bubbly.
I really enjoyed the race and the event afterwards. I think this is one event I will be participating in annually.
Speaking of races, I registered for the SF Marathon’s Progressive Marathon as my reward for reaching a 100 pound loss. Who would’ve thought that I would reward myself with exercise? :)
