Yea, I'm not a very good pacer (More Jog for JS results!)

My sister, Erica, was one of the unfortunates (well, maybe fortunates since the course was long) who didn't get to run with us the other night. So last night the two of us set out to get her 5k time. Of course, she refused to be in a picture because she wasn't looking cute enough so I had to do one solo to show you all my outfit...
Again with more Chrissy's knee high socks! I'm thinking this would be a great 100 follower celebration! Start following people!
all though, come to think of it, I don't think Erica has ever let me take her picture so for all you know I am making her up so I can pretend to have a running buddy! Well, then "Erica" and I set out, did our little .2 mile warm up, and took off. This was a route we had run many times before, so it seemed like any other night, but tonight I was trying to stay with her the whole time instead of running ahead and coming back. I wanted to be a real running companion tonight and help her the best I could. Well, I think I sucked at it. For the most part it consisted of me telling her she was doing a great job in a few places (which she was), asking how she was doing (I don't think you're supposed to do that), and then telling her to walk faster if she had to walk (which I think she hated me for).  But despite what I lacked, she did awesome and after having only done one real 5k before, she PR'd by 5 min! It's even better that she PR'd on the JOG for JS race. Today Jesse (Coach) is going to do his 10k after work so he'll have results for that tonight or tomorrow! Wish him luck, he has lots of girls to beat!
