twenty seven thirty eight

thomas and i ran in the inaugural raytown family 5k on saturday. let me tell you what, i was awesome. AWESOME! what's the point of a blog if you can't tell everyone how great you are? well, here it is again in case you missed it. I AM GREAT. i have never run so fast in my entire life. i am not athletically inclined whatsoever and i don't really like running in the first place. and people that say that do are liars. i ran my first mile in nine minutes and my finish time was 27:38. i was in tears when i saw my time. i don't know how i made it over the finish line without tripping. i am a big baby. and i beat thomas(not by much though) so it was doubley sweet. tripley sweet if you count the cookies i ate when i got home. quadupley sweet if you look at how white my legs are in my booty shorts:
***yes marci, that is your blue springs high school cross country t-shirt from 15 years ago. i still have it. and i am probably never ever going to give it back, so thanks for the inspirational shirt. it's most likely the reason i did so well.
luckily for me and everyone else at the race, georgia man showed up. some of you know him by his alter-ego of thomas, but thomas hates running. so georgia man showed up in his place. please note the georgia socks. georgia man went about his duties at the race of spreading good legal advice, witty repartee and the news of georgia football dominance to everyone that will listen. this is our year baby!

our re-enactment in the front yard. i often wonder how i get thomas to go along with my re-enactment pictures. his face is not pleased. but look at me, ecstatic! blame it on the runner's high.
in order to properly inform everyone of my excellent time, i decided to permanently tatoo my time on my forehead.
GO ME!

Wow, I wouldn't want to run into Georgia Man in a dark alley!

Will & Natalie Giddens said...

PS - And a 5k?! Wow, call me impressed!

Elizabeth said...

lol...you have a good husband. And yes, I am happily surprised that you knew that tune! Um...I don't have a prize for you though. But I think that you getting such an amazing time at that 5K will tide you over for the time being! :)

Emily & Jeremy said...

hahahaha. nice re-inactment pic. but really, congrats on the race. that is superb!

Jess said...

Awesome!! I ran a 5k the other day in 27:52...we would make good running partners!!

Pope Family said...

Angie said...

Congratulations! My mom has started running 5ks and has been encouraging me to do so, but I've yet to run 1k. Maybe you'll be my inspiration or maybe Georgia Man.

OK when I saw your shirt, I thought, "Oh my goodness, is that a BSHS cross country shirt for real??" It was! That made me laugh.

Good job on the racey!

Mindi said...

i must say that i am a little jealous that i don't have my flippin' sweet time tattooed on my forehead.
oh, yeah--that's because i don't run 5ks......

btw, very impressed with that time. YOU GO GIRL!!!

Stimpson's said...

Awesome Heidi!!! I ran one last year....but uh, no - didn't do that good!! It was so good to see you a few weeks ago!! You look beautiful as always and have adorable kids!

Paula said...

27:38. You are my inspiration Heidi. I want to run a 5k before the end of October under 30 mins. I too hate to run and so training is going slowly. Now you have inspired me to work harder:)

Livin' Single said...

i am so proud of you!!! i can only say "i was supposed to run that race but i didn't sign up in time." not as cool. and too lengthy for my forehead.

Wade, Nicole, Nora, & Audrey said...

Ok...first, so proud! Second, where have you been? reply to someone's email once in a while!! ;)


A friend of mine here wants me to start running with her, yikes...a little worried!! ANd BTW, you are GREAT!!!

Caroline said...

WOW! I am so jealous! That is about 2 minutes faster than my best time. You rock! The best part is that you beat Thomas!

Meghan said...

That is really really good!! I have only run 3 miles in 27 min once and I thought I might collapse after. You are my hero! How do you get Thomas, I mean Georgia man, to go along with your re-enactments, let alone run with you? My husband will not run a race with me. He says not unless someone is chasing him with a gun and maybe not even then.

Rachel said...

Very Impressive Heidi! Although I can't believe you wore a BSHS shirt, where is your loyalty to the Jaguar?!
Really though, great job!

Marci said...

First of all...way to go with your run! I am very proud of you. HOWEVER...I about died when I saw the shirt you were wearing! It totally threw me off but I am very grateful for your explaination. My BSHS shirts have all been worn through. I don't have any left...how sad that you have one and I don't!! Then again... I am proud to see that you are not afraid to show pride for the greatest high school in Blue Springs! Good job on your run!

Jessica said...

wow! that is an awesome time! you blew my rex lee run time out of the water. i love the picture of the re-enactment.

Debbie said...

Good job, Heidi! I hate running, too, and it would take a lot for me to even consider doing a 5K! How is Thomas, aka Georgia Man (hilarious, btw!) handling the fact that you beat him? I love that you ate cookies when you got home, and I love your comment about your booty shorts.. haha

amanda said...

Um- you're funny.
And apparently a really fast racer!

You crack me up! I am laughing out loud, so I think I have to read your blog more often!:) I am running a race in the morning and can not get off the dang computer to get some sleep. I am sure, though my race will not be blog or brag worthy after:) good job!
