Update: I didn't die in the 5 miler after all!

I'm up early this morning (early considering I went to bed at 3am) because I had to do some work for my job.  I'm on call this weekend so I got stuck with the early morning work assignment.  Oh how I hate being on call.  Anyways, I figured since I was up and on the computer I might as well blog. 

Thursday, I ran the Marathon Sports Weston 5 miler.  I was super nervous, but it ended up being really fun.  I ran slow, but kept it up the entire way.  I was pretty sure going into the race that I was going to have to walk a little bit, but I didn't.  I was so proud of myself!!  The course in Weston was absolutely amazing.  We got to run in a few neighborhoods around the high school, and the houses were gorgeous.  Weston is a pretty wealthy town as far as towns in Massachusetts goes.  I think maybe I want live there when I grow up. 

I finished the race in just over 58 minutes....which  I don't think is too shabby.  Hubs and Guinness were waiting at the finish line for me.  They snapped these pics of me finishing:

I just look like a speed demon right? 

When I got home I was feeling pretty saucy, so I had Hubs take my picture in the horrendously ugly t shirt that I got for running.
It's actually a nice shirt, but the color is intensely ugly. 

Well, that's it for now.  I'm going to try to wake Hubby and Jefe up (he came over to entertain Hubs while I was sewing).  I'm hungry!
