Lungs on the Run 5K
My Ohio 5K is in West Chester, a suburb of Cincinnati, and is a fundraiser for lung cancer research.
Ready to run...
and at 8:30 a.m., we are off...
This sign says mile 2.
I could not pass the lady in blue.
the finish line...
25:13, 32nd out of 139, 1st in my age group of which there was just one other participant, but my time was also faster than the three 50-59 year old participants.
After the run -- this is KC, a ten year survivor of a bout with lung cancer in which she lost a lung, and today is her birthday. Everyone sang happy birthday to her this morning. Her son and some others started this 5K 3 years ago.
This 5k had more goodies than any other so far. Coupons, gator aid, bananas, sandwiches, bagels, a pair of socks, and more.
Plus I got a $10 Target gift certificate for my age group first.
and, I found some tutus...
After the 5K, we headed to Morgantown, West Virginia, for a Sunday Father's Day 5K.
