Cinco De Mayo 5k


To celebrate Cinco De Mayo my friend Heidi and I decided to run the Highlands Ranch Cinco De Mayo 5k. We are running the Bolder Boulder 10k Memorial Day weekend and we wanted to get in a prep race. Now for those who don't know me that well, I have never been the biggest fan of running like my sister Lindsay. I just have never enjoyed it but I know it is good for me so I am trying to make it a new hobby. I have gotten better at it and am starting to enjoy it! In fact I ran the entire 3.1 miles which is huge for me. Now I just need to start going a bit faster because I was running like 11.5 minute miles. Nevertheless, I didn't stop to walk. We also had our names announced when we finished. I felt kind of like Lindsay at her marathon but I didn't run 26 miles only 3. After the 10k I run the end of this month I will decide if I can run the half marathon with the Smith's!!! We shall see!

Dude, you are awesome! See you've embraced the concept of running at least where as we don't touch it with a 10 foot pole. Bravo to you for running the whole way too. I know it's not Lindsay's marathon but it's still a pretty big and pretty amazing accomplishment. Congrats! Maybe you'll inspire us to start running....

You so totally rock! I HATE running and can't even run a mile when I'm in shape. Good job and you look like a total babe!

Ali! Congrats on the 5k...you even inspired ME to go running on Saturday! We should go running (or walging) together sometime this week!

You are so awesome! I can't wait to hear about the 10k. I've never done one of those races. I've only done 5K's and a marathon. I'm excited for the half marathon though, and hope you decide to do it too!
