What I did this past weekend...

...involved no cycling whatsoever. It's was a 5k weekend. I participated in the Peachtree City Classic 5k road race on Saturday and the Aids Walk Atlanta 5k walk on Sunday.

I've been doing the couch to 5k program (starting on week 3) and decided to incorporate my training into the 5k on Saturday. My goal was to complete the 3.1 mile course under 45 minutes. I managed to pull a time of 43 minutes so I was very excited about that. The Aids Walk was very slow paced. It took 2 hours to complete the course but we had a great time and raised quite a bit of money for the event.

It was an awesome weekend. We have a cycling day trip this coming Saturday so I'm looking forward to that.

Here are some pictures from this weekend:

Me and the wife before the 5k on Satuday (it was freakin cold)



My official tag for the race



Me, my wife, my nephew and niece at Aids Walk



Tons of people doing the walk

Very nice cross training work. Congratulations.

It's good to see the Mrs. is right along side you, and she's not a bike and running widow.
