A 10K for Kristy

By KristySamone — April 20, 2012

My mom is a breast cancer survivor, which is why I didn’t go off the deep end when I discovered she signed me up for a 10k race benefitting breast cancer research. It had been a long while since my participation in any race-way back when I competed on a track team many moons ago. 

 The 13th annual Ukrop’s Monument Avenue 10k boasted 40,600 participants running in the rain on March 31st.

“I’m glad I made an hair appointment after the race,” is all I could think of. All jokes aside, it was tons of fun with people cheering us on from the sides, “Go girls!” and lots of beautiful scenery to take in. Mom and I especially enjoyed passing the houses from the 1900’s with the well manicured lawns.

While walking back from the race, I lived up to my greedy reputation by convincing Mom to stop for goodies. We found a friendly place called Ingrid’s Bakery & stocked up there.

I’ve been bitten by the race bug, with my next one happening tomorrow. This inspired me to blog about last month’s experience.

Special shout out:

Ethiopia’s Mengistu Nebsi beat out returning champion Julius Kogo for first place with a time of 28:33. “Winning!!”
