I'm officially A 5K'er (Fitness Friday)

After months of training and anticipating, I have official signed up for my first 5K. 


The 19th Annual
Alien Chase
(A benefit for the Roswell Humane Society)
on Saturday, July 6th
@7 am

There were options for 5K walk, 5K run, 10K walk, and 10K run.  I signed up for the 5K RUN!

There are rewards for the most colorful shirt and the best costumed alien.
Awards will be given to the best male and female in each "decade" (40-49).  I am not anticipating an age award (unless all the other 40-something women who are running are REALLLLLLY slow!)

Watch for my upcoming series of tips for first race. (If you have ideas to share, e-mail me.)

I saw this one Facebook today and I had to snag it!
