One of my favorite activities at Blog Camp was getting to participate in 5K sponsored by New Balance. The 5K came the morning after our delicious cupcake binge.
Really, they were lots of fun!
Since New Balance sponsored the run, all the New Balance wearers posed for a photo op.
Let me say this…I am not a runner. I walked the 5K. I walked the 5K with a big old camera draped around my neck. Now, THAT is exercise!
I didn’t have a planned partner for the walk. I ended up walking with Talya from Grace, Grits and Gardening. (Since I failed to get a picture of us together, I borrowed one from her website.)
I’ve been following Talya for a while now, so I was really excited to get to know her! I love when she has musical pairings to go with her posts. Talya is a genuine gal. I really enjoyed sweating with her!
There were so many great sights to see along the race path.
We had a couple of challenges along the way. This was the only one I photographed. I was too busy sliding down a fire pole to take other pictures.
I was so inspired by the AWBU 5K that I entered a local race a couple of weeks ago.
I had some great supporters walk/run with me.
Look at all the wonderful pumpkins and gourds that were available to purchase. (These pictures were taken while I was on my walk the day before the race. That is why there are no people in the pictures.)
All of these beauties came from our friends’ farm.
How cute is this house of pumpkins?!
And look who was at the event sharing fall decorating tips…
P. Allen Smith! I did say hello! Unfortunately, I looked like this…hot and sweaty!
The kids took off and left us right off the bat and had a blast. I did actually run bits and pieces of the 5K but walked mostly. Who knows, maybe I’ll do another 5K and actually run the whole way–someday.
