L I V E S T R O N G Challenge

Today the three of us ran in the LIVESTRONG Challenge 5K - yes, the three of us...Kellen cruised along with me in the BOB (which by the way, is one of my favorite baby gear items)! Our day started early - we actually woke Kellen up at 6:30 (ah...never wake a sleeping baby, right?!) and hit the road at about 6:50 to the Nike campus, which is where the race started and finished. It was a great event. In addition to the run that we did, there was a bike ride with different mile options up to 100 miles! It was a hot and humid day and we were certainly glad the race started at 7:50 because it was already pretty warm. I couldn't imagine riding in the longer mileage rides.

Aaron finished in about 20 minutes and Kellen and I took a bit longer, finishing around 35 mintues. I blame the crowd and the stroller for our slow pace, not the fact that I hadn't run since the Quarter Marathon! ha. But really, it wasn't easy navigating the stroller amongst 3000 people! My friend and Nike co-worker, Jen, ran with us and it was just fun to be out there moving with all the people in support of a great cause - the Lance Armstrong Foundation.
