Heidi asked me last week if I wanted to run a 5k for a country in need in Africa. Well, I love all things Africa and said yes! Regardless of the fact that I've only run 3 time in the past month, and Heidi runs 8 minute miles almost every morning. The morning of the race came and it was cold and raining, but off we went. The race was small and fun, and I did my best to keep up with Heidi for the first minute or so, but then my legs just wouldn't keep up. Try as I may, I could not get my body to move fast enough to stay up with her. So I thought to myself "good riddance!" and slowed way down and enjoyed myself a nice little 3 mile run. I don't know my time, so don't ask, but it was slow. I was just thrilled to have run in it. So after the race we were waiting around for the announcement of the winners, because Heidi has a hunch that she may have placed in the top 3 in her age group. Well, sure enough they start to read the winners and she's not called 3rd, and then she's not called 2nd, and then I heard it, "and in 1st place, Heidi B.!!!!! AHHHH! To say I was thrilled is an understatement. As she walked up to receive her fancy dollar store blue ribbon I yelled, "THAT'S MY SISTER!!!!" She was thoroughly embarrassed, and I was feeling on top of the world, like I was the one that had just one 1st place and not 101st. It was a fun morning to be sure!
