Flavor Run Finished ! #5k #MyFirst5k

Today was the day. It was beautiful !!
My family joined me at the Tampa Fairgrounds for my 1st 5k.
This was a Fun Run. It was not "officially" timed, so it took alot of pressure off.
 
The Flavor Run was AWESOME !!
I didn't realize it was the Inaugural race. That made it even cooler to participate in.
 
I walked 60% of the race. My shins were not cooperating. I did run through the finish line.
3.1 miles in 52 minutes..
I'm happy with it
 
The "Flavor Stations" and "Flavor Fairies" were awesome !! I loved seeing families getting involved. Little kids running along side their parents and some even tossing out the Flavored, colored cornstarch powder at runners.
 
I will definitely do this again next year. And I'm not going to do it alone either !!
