One of the things that I love about winter moving its butt out the door and spring dancing on in, is that the 5k’s are plentiful.
As I mentioned in March, I really want to try and do a different 5k each month. The first one on my schedule was this past weekend: the Ocean City Island to Island Half Marathon & 5k.
The half marathon course was super cool and actually went from Assateague Island to the boardwalk in Ocean City (hence, the “island to island” theme). The 5k stuck to Ocean City – starting off at the inlet, running up the boardwalk to 17th street, and then back to where we started.
My sister, Katie, had signed up for the half marathon. It was her first time doing a half marathon race and she proved that all us Harman girls are overachievers… because she won. That’s right; my sister came in FIRST for female half marathon runners:
I did NOT come in first for female 5k runners. I just wanted to get that out there. I did have a great time though and may have taken one of my favorite running pictures EVER.
I know that’s a lot to live up to, but after the race I was totally crossing my fingers that the race photographer got a picture of me when I crossed the finish line.
And by ‘crossed the finished line’ I actually mean when I was LEAPING across the finish line, like a total goof ball.
Any ideas on how I can top this awesome picture at my next 5k?
