The race was the Run for Relief for Rockdale Emergency Relief. RFR for RER. Say that 10 times fast.
Rockdale County Emergency Relief Fund, Inc. (RER),I managed to finish in 35:45 which was a full 4 minutes faster than I had ever done it while training (for all of 2-3 weeks). I was sooooo excited when I turned the corner for the last stretch and saw the time at the finish! I somehow managed to get 2nd place in my age division. Crazy. I am so proud of myself and my girls! :) We all finished ahead of our goal times.

Getting ready to start - I painted 147millionorphans.com on the back of my shirt. I figured at least one person would see it since I refused to finish last. ;)
At the finish - Since I was so far ahead of my normal time Justin was not at all prepared to snap pictures so we only got one or two of me finishing.
Leslie at the finish line!
DONE!I can't wait for the next one girls!
