The Old Fashioned 10 Miler!

We did it girls! Yesterday 20+ of us (some ladies met us at the race) drove to Foxboro, MA and ran The Old Fashioned 10 Miler! We all finished and were proud to have conquered the very hilly course. I am stooped down in the front row with the navy jacket on. I ran with Katie (2nd row, right side with the maroon jacket on) and Liz (2nd row, left side with pink jacket on). We were a good team and managed to keep up 10 minute miles through out the race. 

This all started for me after committing to exercising more regularly in the new year. Katie (friend and neighbor) invited me to join this running group of gals and it's been fabulous. Not only have I learned that you can run outside in the winter, but it's actually quite enjoyable. Especially when you are running with friends you can talk to! 
See, look at us, don't we look happy after finishing our 10 mile run?! 
You betcha!

Here I am with Katie. We literally sprinted to the finish together once we (finally) had the line in view. (Note to self: over-smiling is not a good look for you. Not the best picture of me (ha!) but I was happy and proud.)
Snacking on free food after the race . . . 

Way to go team! It was a blast!

Oh my goodness I make homemade Greek yogurt too! :) I have a thing about it on my blog. Mine started out as a green/sustainability blog but has devolved into silly funny stuff.

Such a fun say yesterday! Thanks for documenting the event!

Okay, the Greek yogurt thing. I tried Chobani from the grocery store, wasn't digging it. But I only tried vanilla flavor, maybe the fruits are better?

Good job on the race. :)
