Christmas Eve 5K

**Hello new readers!!!!

Only a couple other times in my very new running "career" have I ran as hard as I did today.  The other times were:

RUNNING A MARATHON

RUNNING UP A MOUNTAIN
It was WORTH IT.

Christmas Eve 5K- 20:25, 6:23 average pace.

Waaaaaaaahoooooooooooooooooooooo!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Don't forget to submit your time and photo to us at runmomrunblog@gmail.com.  You have until tomorrow night.  If you have no idea what I'm talking about, you should click HERE or HERE.  We seriously can't wait to see all of you running your guts out just like we did.

For some reason I feel like my favorite quote is fitting for today:

"Far better it is to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs even though checkered by failure, than to rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy nor suffer much because they live in the gray twilight that knows neither victory nor defeat."
- Theodore Roosevelt

Running isn't about winning or losing.  It's about getting out there and giving it your all.

Merry Christmas to my favorite running buddies!

Great job, that is a very speedy pace!

I also ran today (I already emailed) and ran it in 28:55 which is great for me!

I'm so happy for you! Seriously! You ran an incredible race!

Is it lame that part of me wants to go try and run it again?

Oooh very fast today! I can't wait to see how everyone did. My time was super slow running with the dogs. Sasha stops to get water every 1/4 mile!

Holy frijole, that is so insanely fast! I have no doubt in my mind that I would need an ambulance if I ran that fast.

Awesome job putting together the virtual 5k!
