Run Like a Diva! Nike Girls' 5K

Sunday morning, Maria and Miss Natalie were up at the crack of dawn to join hundreds of other women in the Nike Girls 5K. The course was set up through Ala Moana Beach Park and without a cloud in the sky, we took off running in a sea of pink!
Maria's favorite part was everything they handed out. Midway through the run, she got a tiara and a pink feather boa! And at the end of the run, we were given a medal with a pink ribbon around our necks.
The positive energy at the 5K helped reinforce why we love to run - because it's good exercise and it's FUN! Our goal was to complete the run in less than 40 minutes, and Maria shared that the hardest part was really pushing herself to keep running. We almost hit our goal with a finish time of 41:59! With our third and final 5K just weeks away, we still have time to keep training and improve our running time!
