Dave and I set off for a run this morning around Bristol, Tennessee. We did about 3 miles before we ended up downtown, where they were starting to set up booths for the bluegrass festival today. Right about the time we got downtown, they were also starting a 5K race. We watched everyone start and then when the runners were about 3 blocks away decided that yes, we should definitely jump in. So we did. We had so much fun! Right before the finish line we ducked out. Final time: 26:30. And because the main street of town is also the state line, technically I finished in Virginia while Dave finished in Tennessee!
5Ks are funny to me. I'm used to doing half marathons and fulls, so this race went so fast! It was a lot of fun.
We jogged home, stopping to walk around in a Confederate Unknowns cemetery. We're showering and getting ready, then headed downtown with my family for Rhythm and Roots!
