Event #12 - Richland Creek Run/Walk...and NEWS!!

This race was our first race over a 5k and we are so proud to say that WE DID IT! The Richland Creek Run/Walk was this past Saturday and covered a 5-mile course! It rained during the night before and for a good portion of the morning, but held off mostly during the race which was nice.

The run started in the Sylvan Park neighborhood and then ran onto the greenway. Once you got to about the 2 1/2 mile point there was a turn around and then back up the greenway and through the neighborhood. The course was filled with tons of hills, but luckily we run on the greenway a lot so we were pretty familiar with them. The course even ended on a hill, but like I said before WE DID IT! This was the farthest we have run yet and a nice preview of things to come since we signed up for the Army Ten Miler in October.

Here are our results from our FIRST 5-miler:
194th place - Nate Towne - 52:45
195th place - Sara Ross - 52:45

We are so excited with our results and had such a good time running the race. We took a few pictures of the race too, so enjoy!

After! We did it!

Oh..and I know that I said there was news as well as results. As of Friday night (before the race), Nate & I are ENGAGED!! He popped the question and I was completely surprised. Needless to say we had a LOT to celebrate this weekend! Here are a few pictures of that as well...

see...we're engaged!!
