Our second 5k!

Hard to believe, but it was a year ago that Amy ran her first 5k race. I was ill and not able to run with her, but this year I did! Unfortunately, we don't have any pictures to show for it, because we were both running and had no place to safely keep our camera. Amy finished in about(*) 32 minutes, evidence that she slowed down to run with me for the first half of the race. I, on the other hand, finished in about(*) 42 minutes, having to walk parts of the last half of the race to spare my knees and legs that are not used to running. Amy tells me that's not too bad, given that I've only run 4 times in the last year, and all of them have been in the last 2 weeks in preparation for this race. I think I'll stick to swimming and let my knees recuperate...

* - exact times were measured with chips we strapped to our shoes, but we have not gotten the results yet.
