The Run – in photos

I know it was only 10 kms but I’m feeling tired so I’ll let the photos* do the talking…

$2 face paint at 7am in the morning!

lovely day for a run

inching closer to the start line...

Apparently,  my run past the starting line featured on the evening news hehe

my awesome running buddy/coach/cousin!
Thank you, Ada for coming out to meet me at the finish line :)
:)
...satisfied :)
Ran the 10kms (6.21371192237 miles for my American friends) a lot quicker than I anticipated at 1hr and 14 mins (only stopping once not counting water station pauses).  PtL for no rain and a pretty good weather AND an awesome running buddy who could have run a much better time, but stayed with me all the way and kept encouraging me to push through :).  Donation tally is currently at $462.00 with a few pledges coming next week – if you would like to make a contribution to the awesome work of A21, it’s not too late to provide support together for a better future for those living in human slavery- an injustice that unbelievably still exists in the 21st century – see fundraising blog :).
Another full week of work and cover-letter writing ahead so I better get an early night!  Have a great week y’all (as my Alabama intern buddy would say)!

  1. A 10k is quite an accomplishment! My sisters ran one back in February at an event for Congenital Heart Defects. I would have ran with them, but I was still recovering from a c-section. I’d do it next year too but by then I’m hoping to be pregnant with baby #2.

    Congrats! You did a great job! Props to you for believing in such a great cause and for doing something about it.

    P.S. I’m going to send you your goodies from the giveaway as soon as I get some extra money, which should be this Tuesday. :)

    1. Thanks, Amy! I’m still feeling it in my legs a bit but I’m still functioning alright after it :P. Well, I think having baby #2 would be a big accomplishment in itself… looking forward to hearing the good news!

      And no rush with the goodies (though I’m thoroughly looking forward to them!)… it’ll be a lovely surprise whenever they come :). Cheers!
