getting fit4fall

i've happily participated in the annual bryan clay "fit4fall" run since the inaugural race a couple of years ago. it was my first real 5K, and although i don't ever have a chance at taking home any bling from it (medals are given only to the top 3 finishers), it's one of my favorites.

this year was particularly awesome because the hub joined me for it. he managed to fulfill the goal he made to complete four 5Ks in 2013, and i'm really proud of him. 

the course was the same as in previous years, and it's nice and flat. i'm not sure what it is about it, but i've been able to get through it every year without stopping for any walk breaks. i'm not particularly fast, but at least i was able to beat the chik fil a cow.

about ten minutes after i crossed the start line i was here:

and then here:

then i came around the last corner and spotted the bean and the teen, who snapped this. 

i didn't get a picture with bryan clay this year, but that's okay. he stood at the end and high-fived every single runner as they crossed the finish line. 

even the cow. 


the hub finished just a few minutes after me. pretty good for a guy who spends a good chunk of time either at a desk or in a cigar lounge, heh.

oh, and yeah - gotta love the little photobomber.
