Mayor Karl Dean has really been focusing on initiatives to help the people of Nashville get fit and healthy, and the 5K was being held on a Sunday afternoon downtown for FREE.
It turned out to be a sunny and warm day, but it was crazy windy!
Here is the boy and me before the race.
We were just running for fun, so we stayed together the whole time. The course was super hilly, and due to the wind I had trouble even running downhill!
The finish was on a hill (lame), but we pushed it up and finished in 26:45.
It was a fun way to be involved in something positive here in Nashville, and we enjoyed seeing other friends out there!
