Lanier Under the Lights

On Saturday we went to support David and Dana who were running in the Lanier Under the Lights 5k race. We thought about signing up, but wasn't sure if David would be in town and I thought it would be too cold so for one reason or another we didn't sign up. Well, apparently Davids brother, Darrin didn't get that memo. We told them about this 5k  a while ago and as we were driving there they sent us this picture.
The caption was You Suck!! From the fit crew!!! We had no idea they were still doing it. 
So we pull up to the gate and say we would  like to watch the finish of the race and so they said that we had to get out and walk to the finish line that was just past the clock tower. 
As we were walking to the finish line all the sudden to our left we see the "fit crew" running by us! We then realized that we were walking alongside the race and that if we don't pick up our pace we will miss seeing them finish. We were at mile marker 2 when we started our journey to the finish. The race is 3.1 miles so we did a little over a mile to cheer on the "fit crew". That's what we get for not signing up and running.
We did get to go through all the fun lights, we enjoyed that part.
 This was my favorite part. The snowflakes go across the top of the tunnel.
 Well, we finally made it to the finish line, our time was 43 minutes. Needless to say, we missed them finishing. There time was 38 minutes.
Here's them after they are done, waiting to turn in their time slips. 
Here I am after I finished. I was glad I was able to get some exercise and see all the pretty lights. They are all mad that we only did a mile, but hey I was in jeans and had moccasin type shoes on.
We met up with Ashley and her boyfriend at Taco Mac to have some yummy food at drinks. We had to cancel out any type of physical activity we just did, right?! They all did a great job though! Goooo Fit Crew!!

So fun! I love that you got to see all the lights, and that's hilarious that you guys ended up running some of it to try and catch your friends at the end! Next year you should do it (with your ear muffs of course)!

It looks like you had so much fun!! I'm glad you got to catch up with "the fit crew" and finish the race with them. And I'm glad you got to see the christmas lights!
