Shawn and I took part in the Shriners Hospital for Children Candlelight 5k. It was a fun run except it got humid rather fast during the run. Shawn said he was going to run with me and pace me and I was like ok but if you want to just go that’s cool. Shawn got caught up next to a guy who wanted to chat with him… needless to say he took off and left me hanging. HA! At Mile marker 1 they had a time clock, it read 6:24 when I ran by. I was like WTF! No way I’m running that fast. Shawn said when he went by it it said 6:00. At the turn around point around mile 2 we passed each other exchanged smiles and a wave. When we crossed the finish line we both realized that this race was not a 5k. My GPS watch said 2.67. Regardless, both Shawn and I set new PR’s.
Greenville is such a great running community. Almost 600 people came out on a Saturday night to run for children. Our entry fee was all donated to the Shriners Children Hospital.
