Janeen's Run 5k

.




So this was just about the sweetest race I've ever attended. 
I made a friend
The guy hosting it was on the Ga Tech track team some odd years back and so was his wife, Janeen. 
I'm very sorry to say, however, that his wife died last year in a car accident. 

But he decided to honor her memory by hosting a race to raise funds for an athletic scholarship. 
It was even more touching because all the men and women that ran with her on the team showed up to run it.
So I was honored to be a part of it. 


Now, it was, however a killer race. I never knew that Atlanta could be so... hilly. I put out an ok time of 26:40. I was hoping to PR, but once I realized the type of course I was dealing with, I pretty much kissed that dream goodbye. But I enjoyed myself nonetheless. 

Unfortunately my shins took quite a beating and I've been nursing them since then. I've been doing a lot of yoga and icing them. I refuse to get shin splints right before summer starts. 

Anyways, I hope everyone else had an awesome weekend! I should be wrapping up finals tomorrow and then my summer OFFICIALLY begins.
