RUN for FUN

My first 10K is next weekend....in the mean time I found a local 5 mile FUN RUN in the town I grew up in, BEAUTIFUL Bonney Lake.
Fun Run? Yes I run and have fun.. Maybe this is for me. $10, totally doable. Winner gets a gift certificate to Fleet Feet...

I wonder what time the female winner posted last year?
Could I pay $10 and end up ahead by winning?
I wonder how fast I can do 5 miles?
Better get there early so I can be near the start.
I should try to find out the race route.
I have run that are so many times I can do it!!
All I have to do is stay ahead of all the other Females.

Fun Run....for the uber-competitive FUN takes on a whole new meaning..LOL.. I may never WIN (or even run) the Boston Marathon, but the Bonney Lake Days 5 Mile Fun Run...I may have a shot. I have not fully committed but will let you know how it goes if I do RACE for FUN..

FYI was hoping to have a GREAT Giveaway sponsored by a wonderful company today....but I didn't get my chickens in line in time. So Friday Giveaway it is... In the mean time go wish Bloggy Buddy Amanda a Happy Birthday and enter her Giveaway HERE...

Have FUN on your RUN today

I had the exact same conversation with myself during my town's Fun Run last month. Ha! I ended up getting second overall, but I googled like a crazy person to try and find out all I could before the race. Good luck to you!

It is only fun if you are having fun! Sometimes fun is going completely anaerobic and puking on the finish line, sometimes it is eating an ice cream cone. Of course you could do both, just might want to eat the ice cream after the race :)
