The "Year of 40" Race Number 29: Tunnel to Towers Savannah 5K

Got to run one of my personal favorite races, the local Tunnel to Towers Savannah 5K.  I make sure to try and do this one every year as it honors the heroes of 9/11 and our military & first responders who serve us today. Adding to the day was getting to share the experience with one of my kiddos. She even managed to shave 2 whole minutes off her time from this race last year, which incidently was her very first 5K!

Early morning pre-race Shakeology for some quality
but easily digestible nutrition.

Hanging out in Orleans Square waiting until it's
time to line up and run.

Awesome crowd for this race!

Just about ready to go!

Post-race breakfast at DD!

The "Year of 40" Race Number 28: Kisses for Catie 5K

Got to run a 5K held in my community for race number 28. Click here to see more about the Kisses For Catie organization.

Fortunately, the weather was right on for running and wasn't as hot and humid like more of the recent Summer races. I ended up running one of my personal best times and finishing third overall.
