Scope it Out 5k-Polyp Wrangling

Sunday Morning I was up and at them early to fulfill my role as Polyp Wrangler (more conventionally known as a volunteer coordinator)signe2

Some of the Polyps before the racegroup1

My favorite Polyp Planning Partner and Polyp Liaisonme-and-kim

Rallying the troupes, complete with morning coffeerunning-the-show

Directing the troupes-Jacquie’s got her coffee as well!important-news

Part of our job was to participate in the warm-up.  That’s me in the back left with my friend Shea.  She’s not officially on the team, but she knows important people, so she was able to be a polyp! me-and-shea

Nearing the finish line…and yes, I wore the cowboy hat the whole race! coming-home1

I love this picture!  I think it’s so cool that Ed* got the Capitol in the background!  frontside

Jacquie ran the last .2 miles to encourage me to push it to the finish line!  It’s a good thing she did!  I was excited that I kept 15:32 minute miles.  backside

My next 5k will probably be either the Arlington Science Focus 5K or the National Police Week 5k .  I’m leaning towards not running the Arlington race, as I prefer to do those run/walk races….lessens my chance of being the last across the finish line!

My goal for the National Police Week 5k is break 45 minutes for total race by keeping a pace of 14:30. 

My reach goal for the National Police Week 5k  is to break my PR (incidentally set at this race last year) of 43:50 (that’s a 14:07 pace) . 

My super reach goal is to break 40:00, which is a sub 13 minute mile pace.

  1. These are great photos! You look so great! Secretly I was glad to have the blue runners shirt… red is not my signature color but you owned it. Can’t wait for our next 5K!
