Catherine's first race

One mile in 20:22 for a distance and time PR, including jogging, running, skipping, walking, walking backwards, and a short rest stop sitting on the curb. We weren't last. Most importantly, we had great fun!

It was the First Annual St. Patrick's Day 5K & One Mile Walk, by Caroline Human Service Council, Inc., in Denton, Maryland. Lots of great schwag too, including ringpops and fistfuls of chocolate coins!

That's awesome! Starting them early...nicely done. I expect to see swimming and tri-cycling added within the next few months.

That race bib is just about as big as her. Hilarious!
