Ponce Inlet "Run for SPARC 5K"

Well, we got up early this morning and headed down to Ponce for our 3rd
5K of the year so far. We got a beautiful, sunny, breezy 75 degree morning for the race and everything went off without a hitch.

Brit and Fran could not make this race due to getting back just yesterday from their vacation and Hunter having to race last night. Vinnie was a no show as well, due to having to work this morning. We did get Jinelle to run another one though.

Me and Deanna both beat our last times. Dee ran her 3.1 miles in 35:41 beating her last race by almost 1.5 Min's. I finally broke the 30 min barrier and ran mine in 29:16, beating my last time by 1.5 Min's also. Jinelle actually placed second in her age group for this race with a time of 39:40.

Goal wise, yes we both improved on our times and that feels pretty nice, but Dee has dropped more weight and another dress size and we both continue to work out, so the fact that we are both still running and working out 6 months after we had started feels really good.

Our next 5k will be the "6th Annual 5K Run for Meals On Wheels" run up at the LPGA golf course in Daytona on May 3.
