Downingtown 5k and a Wonderful Wedding

Happy Tuesday folks! I hope everyone had a great holiday weekend.

This weekend I visited Pennsylvania for a fun-filled holiday including a very special wedding. But first a 5k!

Each year Frank’s fam runs the Good Neighbor Day 5k and throws an epic 4th of July party after. Luckily I have been able to partake the past few years! The 5k starts at Kerr Park in Downingtown and is a fun run through the neighborhood. Last year I couldn’t handle the heat and ran at my slowest pace ever and actually had to walk a little. So my goal this year was to do better. Easy enough!

Race finishers!  I set a new 5k PR of 26:15 at a pace of 8:27 and was very happy!

The rest of the day was spent celebrating the 4th and then prepping for Frank’s sister’s wedding!

Congrats Rita and Jason! Thank you for letting me share in your special day 🙂
