First 5k in the States

The first time I participated in a 5K was in Guatemala... and then a 10K and then another 5K, all in Guatemala. So it was a little weird to get to do one for the first time in the States!
It was fun to do with an aunt who doesn't act half as old as she is. (Not that I'm calling her old.) And the highlighter-yellow shirt was cool...

...but not as cool as receiving the medal for first place in my age. Which sounds really good...
 ...except we were walking. :) This was her first 5k and she couldn't run yet and didn't want to do it by herself, so we walked it. (So either everyone my age is a slow walker or was running.) Either way, it was interesting to compare how it was similar to races in Guatemala.
Next year we hope to run it together!
