It's there if you just look!

Had a little fun this morning. A couple of days ago Eris told me that she was going to run a fundraising 5k with her niece. Since I'm trying to increase my ralking time to more running than walking (a dismal failure this last week) it seemed like a perfect time to give it a go.

My time was awful (no numbers today, thanks) but the weather was wonderful and the company was great. Eris beat me, of course, even though she had to stop behind a trailer to fix a "wardrobe malfunction" that could have made her run quite uncomfortable.

A huge shout-out to Eris' niece and sister-in-law, two of my favorite people in the world. Also, a special award to SIL who walked the entire 5k in spite of recovering from a procedure done just a few days ago. What a woman!

And as a special treat, we all finished with coinage found on the race course! (The photo is fudged a little, but we really all picked up a few coins!)

So much fun. I am hoping the "wardrobe malfunctions" cease - at least until December when I can hit people up for gift cards.

I am still giggling about the wardrobe malfunction...

Numi, I can relate to wardrobe malfunctions. I always carry emergency material in my vest. What fun, running/walking a 5K with friends and family. Also searching for coinage helps the miles go by more quickly.

MoneyWalker, I highly doubt that you will ever have the same malfunction that Eris had. On the other hand, a large roll of duct tape might have come in handy!

Eris found the first penny in a gutter while we were still running side by side and before she left me in her dust. I was quite upset!
