Children's Mansion 5K
I ran in the Children's Mansion 5K yesterday, here in Tupelo. Jimmy and the children did not participate because they are running tomorrow in the Chick-Fil-A 5K in Memphis. The Chick-Fil-A race states that no strollers are allowed, so I did not sign up. However, last year there were several people pushing strollers in the race. So I plan to ask them tomorrow if I can start in the back, out of the way of the serious runners, and walk/run the race too. Anyway, yesterday's race course was tough! Full of hills---over and over again! I was very pleased with my time, 29:15. The older children ran a 2K during my 5K, but it was not very organized. There was confusion about the length of the course.....anyway, they exercised and had fun.
