Last weekend on an unusually gray, rainy and cold day here in CO, John and I ran the Colfax 5k at the Denver City Park. There were 921 runners, a pretty good turnout considering the poor weather. This is only our 2nd 5k. I was 8 weeks pregnant with Mason for our first one back in Ohio last May. Then for the next 9 months I was relaxing eating bon bons on the couch doing nada.
It's great that Colorado has 5k's, Half's and Marathons all the time and all over the place, so lots to chose from. We look forward to the next one.

(I promise we did not plan on matching!)
Even with the new high altitude adjustment which is very noticeable at first when running, walking up stairs, moving of any nature etc. in this mountain state. We both managed to beat our times last year for our first 5k.

It's been such an awesome activity for John and I to do together! We have a friendly competition with one another that makes it more fun to run.
