Reach Run for Independence!

Today was the Reach Run for Independence. I did a 5K. The race proceeds help Reach which helps mentally handicapped people with job skills, housing, transportation and employment. My cousin lives in one of their apartment houses and works at their center often. It's such a great program! There was a pretty good turnout this year!

So great cause, horrible race. :( I have no problem admitting I'm a fair weather runner, unfortunately I don't skip something I've already signed up for. This morning was drizzly rain, overcast and about 45 degrees. My legs hurt from all the hiking and I just wanted to go home to my warm dry bed. I tried to run but I was tired and mental not in it. My time was 47mins. Well at least there's room for improvement.

It's not like I regret signing up for the was just kinda miserable. Afterwards my friend said "well you'll have something to blog about!" HAHA
