Push and Pull

I didn't think I would run the Swiss Days 10K that was taking place in Midway today... until my friend Mindy Kohler tempted me with having all of us wear our socks from the Ragnar.

Mindy Kohler, Laura Means, Audra Thomas, Amy, Holly Roylance

I couldn't.
So, we suited up in our gnarly socks and we all ran a personal best. I took 2nd place in my division and 14th overall finishing the 10K in 47:50.5 with an average of 7 minutes and 41 seconds/mile. There were about 600 runners in this race. I was so proud of myself! Darcy and I pushed and pulled each other along all the way to the end, again. What would I do without such an awesome running partner? I will tell you what I'd do- walk. It's good to have someone that pushes you along sometimes.
Did I mention that I won a hat? Because I did. And it's awesome.

FINISHERS!! Me, Darcy Haas, Mindy, Audra, Laura

Those socks would tempt me to run a 10k too! Maybe that will be my motivator for the half...funky socks! Well done my love!

Go Amy! I need your ambition.

You rocked those socks!!! Today's race totally brought the runner out in me. One day, I'd like to actually be competition.

Congratulations. I can't run that far. My knees start to hurt. Bad.
