Washington D.C.: Komen 5K Race for the Cure (the biggest 5K in the USA with over 40,000 runners)
7:00 a.m. heading to the National Mall on the Metro Blue Line
This way to the 5K
In the chute
And we are off...
Not much room to run
Almost to the finish
26:10, lots of bobbing and weaving. 6th out of 36 in my age group.
Lots of tutus
Pretty in Pink
and how bout these cheerleaders from a local high school
They were encouraging and cheering the whole time. I could hear them when I was a quarter of a mile away, and their chants got louder and louder. They were a great source of inspiration to finish the 5K and very kind to take a picture.
20 States and DC Completed (blue).
Scheduled for May (red).
