Donna's 5K

Today's 5K started at 8:30, which is such a delightful relief from Disney, which usually start at 5:30am. So Steve and I leisurely got up, got dressed, and headed to the start. Today was a beautiful sunny day, and although it was "cool" (for Jacksonville) at 51 degrees, it certainly was warmer than back home in Nashville, where my sources say it was 20 degrees (and felt like 10).

There are many great things about this 5K - the course by the waterway, the cause, Joan Benoit, and the participants. And did I mention the Chic-Fil-A cow, and the fact that the cow's employer gives out free chicken biscuits before the race?

Anyhow, once the costume judging was done (we didn't enter), Steve and I took off with the other participants. We walked and enjoyed the 3.1 miles and soon were done. And then we headed off to breakfast!!

Steve, Luanne, and The Cow - and then we got our chicken biscuits!

This lady did the 5K pushing her three dachshunds in a double baby stroller.
The passed me. As did the lady who had two knee replacements this year.
I may not be fast, but I am also slow ... 
Breakfast at The Fox Restaurant - the "Hawaii 5-0" omelet. Book 'em Danno!!

Another Donna 5K in the books - see you next year!!
Thankful today for: beautiful day for a 5K; other participants along the way; knee replacement lady and her friend and dachshund lady and her three pups; breakfast with Steve at Fox; helpful clerk at Walgreens
