1st Annual Goldy Run

Saturday, April 9th, 2011

Saturday we got up bright and early for me to run the Goldy Run 5K. Boy was it an early 5K of the season! Since I'd been busy with training and working extra days (daytime days on top of that!) I didn't really get any 'practicing' in. I did run last Monday, indoors on the treadmill for a bit, then I ran around Calhoun on Wednesday, the first actually 5K attempt with some walking. Then Saturday I actually RAN the whole thing! It felt good to get the running season underway!

The Goldy Run (Goldy after the Golden Gophers, still lost? University of Minnesota :-P ) was held at TCF Bank Stadium (where the UofM football team plays). We started out on the street and ran loops throughout campus, then ended up inside of the stadium with our faces on the MegaTron as we crossed the finish line.

Kyle didn't run with me, but he was there to cheer me on (and take pictures).

The run benefited University of Minnesota Amplatz Children's Hospital... WHERE I WORK! And so a few of us Child Life Specialists signed up and 'ran' together. We started together, but we all had different paces :-)

It was a fun morning, I love runs!
