Two years ago my husband was deployed to Iraq. Needless to say my running/racing days came to a screeching halt. I did run a 10k in the fall of 2016, but that was my last organized run/race.
So when my girlfriend Kandice asked me to run the “Whiskey Joe’s 5k” with her, I jumped at the chance. We agreed we’d only be running for fun, and she has a goal to run the entire thing. I had no time goal in mind so I told her I’d love to run the whole thing together.
We arrived to the race early, and watching the sky change colors as the sun began to rise was amazing. I may hate mornings but I do love a good sunrise. The race was seamless and we finished in around 40 minutes and she ran the whole thing! I was so proud of her. We sat on the beach and enjoyed our complementary beer, and then had a yummy brunch together. (we’re still doing Keto-so I skipped the English muffin, lol)
Here are a few pics from our day!
