Lucky #5!

Saturday morning Kyle and I finished our 5th race of the year. This one was the Inaugural Rhino Run 8k. All of the proceeds went to the Ronnie's Kids Scholarship Fund. It helps kids get sports equipment. We thought it was amazing what they were doing and wanted to be a part of it. The race started at 8am and it was a GORGEOUS route. It went along a golf course and the views were spectacular. It was a side of El Paso we had never seen before. I stepped it up for this race because I wanted to push myself and see how fast I could go. When we hit the clocks at the finish line we finished 4.97 miles in 52:15. I was elated!!!

In the bags we were given they had fliers for several other races coming up. I couldn't pass some of them up so I registered for 4 more.

September 7: Future Engineers 5k
September 22: Tony Mena Memorial 8k Race for PTSD Awareness
October 19: Grape Race 8k at Zin Valle Vineyards
November 9: Desert Dash 10k


This race was so well put together that we will definitely be participating again next year. 

The rest of our weekend was spent relaxing and laying around the house, which we both needed.

I hope you all had a great weekend!

  20. Good for you! Glad you did well and even under an hour! Hurrah!
    We walked 3 miles in the woods at an estuary, while on our coast trip. Didn't get to where we had planned. But the walk was nice and QUIET! And we had a great time together. i usually don't walk that far and I did great. Not running yet! Hugs and have a great week.
