Women’s Fitness 5k (Belated Post)

So this is a belated post: Sofia and I participated in the St. Luke’s Women’s Fitness 5k on September 20th. It was our first time “strolling” the event – and actually it was the first 5k for both of us. The day of the race dawned dark, foreboding and very wet! We were participating as part of Team Giraffe Laugh (Sofia’s daycare). Dave dropped us off a few blocks from our starting line at 8:15am for our 9:00am start. It was pouring down rain but there were thousands of women (and some men too) out to run, walk or stroll themselves up Capitol Boulevard, past the Boise Depot and over to Ann Morrison Park.

We were spotted by other team members (probably because of the giraffes I made and attached to Sofia’s stroller) who were smarter than I was and had been hanging out in a nearby parking garage with many other smart racers. Despite being drenched through my jacket – before the race even started – we had a great time and will definitely be doing it again.

The Women’s Fitness Celebration is a huge event in Boise bringing in something like 16,000 people for the 5k event. Next year will be the 10th anniversary. The race will be held on September 26, 2009. If you’re interested in participating or just checking it out go to: www.celebrateall.org
