"Girls on the Run is so much fun...woooo"

The Girls on the Run 5k on Sunday was fabulous!!! The weather was perfect and the girls shined. They don't have chips in this race, all the girls wear the number 1, and there isn't a record of the places each girl came in. But one of the girls from my group came in 3rd!!! I think she ran it in 23 minutes or so. I ran with the same girl the entire time, because I felt that she needed the running partner most. The other girls in my team were running either with their dads or with another friend. All of the girls in my team finished and had a great time!

The girls started out with a warm up with some hip-hop dancer. They did a dance to N'Sync's "Bye Bye Bye" and I nearly cried when I asked my team if 1) they knew this song and 2) they had heard of N'Sync, and to both questions they replied "no". If I didn't dread my 27th Birthday in July, I do now!!

My husband followed the race course and took pictures of me and my team. I laughed each time I saw him, because he was at every 1/2 mile of the race. I guess he ran his own 5k around the spectators trying to find me.

Here was the race starting off.

If there is a Girls on the Run in your city, I highly encourage you to get involved.

What a great event! I'm almost positive that one of my violin students ran that on Sunday. She's adorable and a really great student. I thought about you when she was telling me about GotR. :)

And yes, I'm in my early 20s and feel old now. They don't know who *NYSNC is? Wow....

Looks wonderful!

The nsync thing is so funny. Sometimes I think I'm hip and then I'll talk to my nieces and nephew and they have no idea what I'm talking about!
