Today my husband and I participated in the "Run 4 Shelter" (http://www.run4shelter.net/) 10K/5K Run/Walk to benefit the Our Haven Homeless Shelter on Kent Island. I'd never done an event of this type before, but I know the good work that the shelter and everyone associated with it does to help our area's homeless, so I thought it would be a good idea, as well as fun and good exercise. Being the non-competitive slacker that I am, however, I chose the 5K walk instead of the run (it's best to break into these things slowly, right?)
Registration for the event started at 7:00 AM and the race began at 8:00. The weather could not have been any more beautiful, either. It was relatively cool when we got there and was only predicted to be in the high 70's later in the day. We were blessed with sunny, bright blue skies and puffy white clouds the whole time. Perfect!
