Fargo Marathon 5K

Last night I ran in the 5K portion of the Fargo Marathon.  Despite 90+ degree heat, it was awesome!  I went with two coworkers.  It was their first  5K and my fifth.  This was by far the funnest race I have ran.  There were over 9,500 registered runners.  The whole atmosphere was so inspiring.  Along the race course, there were people cheering the runners on.  With the heat, people along the race route had their sprinklers on and sprayed you with water guns!  There was even a spot where the fire hydrant was turned on to spray a mist!  I wish I had pictures, but I can't take pictures and run at the same time--I'm not that talented!  I forgot to bring my mp3 player, but there were places along the route with DJ's, radio stations, and even people playing music!  It was such a fun experience!  My time was 36 minutes and 24 seconds.
This is me taken shortly after the race.  Very proud of myself.
This is the medal that everyone received for finishing the race.  The back side says "Finisher."
