One of the fun parts was this past Saturday. The 7th annual (and my 3rd annual) Police Week 5K was held down by the memorial and even though the weather sucked because it drizzled, it was still a great run. Lots and lots of people ran, but I didn't feel like it was as big as it has been the last 2 years. Maybe because of the weather... This year we had a few more people we knew running and the course was a little different than the last 2 years (No running up Capitol Hill... YES!!!) My friend Dan from college ran and actually ended up winning 3rd place for Fundraising, as well as Christy, her husband and a few of her friends. My hubby ended up not getting off work until 3am, so he went but was "too tired to run" which I'm upset about because he's run the last 2 years and it's been our thing every year at Police Week. Oh well, he was still there to cheer me on!
Kristelle had the hood of Tommy's cruiser memorialized for the 27 officers killed in the line of duty for Prince George's County and placed it down at the Memorial. I was seriously mesmerized by it and the sentiment of it almost had me in tears. I get so emotional about line of duty deaths because I just can't imagine going through any of it if something were to happen to my husband. It makes me appreciate having my husband come home every night, even if he works a 12 hour OT shift because of a homicide at 6pm and doesn't get in bed until 5am.
|Dan and I after the race! Even with 2 torn ACL's he ran 3.35 miles under 30 minutes! LOL|

Hope everyone is having a great week and I'll be updating soon on my Half marathon training!
