My BFF, her friend, and my mom came into town for the Thin Mint Sprint this past weekend from San Antonio. I was so happy they came in. I actually got to see my BFF 3 days in a row! (one night for dinner in SA, and then Friday and Saturday!)
The race was put on by my Girl Scout’s Service Unit (group of troops in the area). It was a fundraiser for one of the other troop’s big trips. It was a smaller race, around 100 entrants for the 5K (which ended up being 3.5).
The race packets were cool. One of the troops (of older girls) took t-shirts and made them into re-usable bags! I will post photos and directions soon. Great idea! If you are in the Austin area, they will custom make you reusable bags for FREE!
It was the first official 5K for my BFF and her friend. They both did great!
I was exhausted from long hours from traveling and work training, but I did better than I expected. 2nd overall woman, 1st age group, 10th overall. It was my first 5K in almost a year (not including relays). No PR, but then again, the race was 3.5 miles, not 3.1. My watch doesn’t match the photo or the chip time, nice. I’ll go by my Garmin.
Women’s age group winners
Love this photo of myself with one of the Brownies from my troop. Showing off our awards. All of the kiddos who did the Daisy Dash got medals. I hope that next year all of my troop will participate in the fun!
I was also the fastest troop leader 😉
And because I don’t always act my age, I decided I needed to get in the trunk of the Fiat they were raffling off. I’m not even sure my suitcase would fit in there. For the record, I do fit…barely. Should have seen me trying to get out. I had to get out hands first, haha!
After lunch my mom, sister, and I shopped until we dropped at the Round Rock outlets. I was able to spend my Christmas giftcard at Ann Taylor and then some! Yay for new clothes, I never go shopping.
Great way to spend a Saturday! Good run, friends, weather, food, and girl time 🙂
