Catalina Gold!

The first part of our Cruisecation was a trip over to Catalina Island to run a 5K together. It was SO much fun! We have all been training for this race for several months, so we were all excited to run it together. Here we are outside our hotel room before the race. We were all sure Mom was going to beat us all. She is speedy.
The race went fabulously well, with Laura beating everyone! Megan was next, then Mom and then my pregnant self. Here we are waiting around until the medals ceremony. There was a morning race ferry coming from Long Beach that didn't make it on time for the race, so a second race group started out for the half marathon and 5K over an hour later than the original start. So, we had a lot of time to wait until the results came in.
The results:
Megan was 1st in her age group with a time of 28:28
Mom was 1st in her age group with a time of 28:48
Laura was 3rd in her age group with a time of 27:55
and I was 6th in my age group but I'm not sure my time (I just know I ran it under 35 minutes and 'ran' the whole way, which was my goal).
Here the ladies are waiting for their medals:
Yippee!!! Way to go Ladies!

Looks like fun! And congrats - how pregnant is your pregnant self?? I'm on the countdown now - 5 weeks to go!

Hey Shelley! I didn't know you were expecting...you're almost there. I'm just about 25 weeks pregnant. I was like 22 weeks pregnant at the race. Do you know what you're having?

Megan said...

Jo, I just looked up your time. It was 34:18.

Shelley said...

No, I don't know - I'm all about the surprise! What about you??
(And good for you for running while prego - I don't break out of a brisk walk for 9 months!)

Hey, Congrats! I didn't know that, either! (I knew about Shelley, but not you, Jodie.) That's great news. I myself am just sixteen weeks along. I'm impressed at you running the race. I have Caleb, my 42-pound three-year-old, to provide me with weight training, so I'm good.

I can't believe all the Freeze women are so speedy! Way to go!

And, congrats, also, on your pregnancy, which you have clearly kept a blog secret.
