So I ran this 5K called the Roger's River Run in my town on July 14th. There are lots of rivers in Colorado. And lakes. And really, any body of water a mosquito would like to breed in.<br><br>
Anyways, I finished in 29:12. My goal was 28:00, but I'm happy because I took a minute off my last time anyway. There was no schwag, but my mom was there taking pictures.<br><br>
The best part: an accordian player was strolling about playing that Metallica song <i>Unforgiven.</i><br><br>
God, I love these podunk small-town races.

Nice run!<br><br>
I bet the scenery in your town is incredible.<br><br>
Did we suggest "have Mom take pictures of me racing," as one of the activities in your Mom thread? If we didn't, we should have.<br><br>
Way to go, Bux.

Thanks Roots! The scenery is indeed beautiful. You can see Long's Peak anywhere in town.<br><br><img alt="" src="http://www.hanselmannphotography.com/New%20Images%20Jan2005/Thumbnails,%20Jan%202005/Longs%20Peak%20Dawn,%202,%20.jpg" style="border:0px solid;"><br><br>
This is Long's Peak. Some fella named Hanselmann took this photo, not I.

I'm having lots of fun with my mom! My dog, Jack the Wonder Poodle I, is thrilled to have two women attending to all his needs.

Accordion players playing Metallica? I'd say that's pretty darn cool!<br><br>
Nice effort, Bux, and great that you have your mom along for the festivities
