On Saturday, I ran the Cedar Creek Winery 10k, and it was rough to say the least.
The race was held at the beautiful Cedar Creek Winery at 6:00 in the evening. It was a hot and humid 84 degrees and sunny when the race started. My aunt Lana, dad, mom, George, and friend Ashley were all participating. My mom and Ashley did the 5k, with the rest of us doing the 10k.

At around mile 2, you turn the corner and see this. Sadly, this is one of the more mild hills. I would have taken pictures of some of the bigger ones, but I was using every ounce of energy to just finish at that point.
I'd say maybe 2 miles of this course were enjoyable, the rest had me cussing under my breath and looking for every opportunity to pay someone to drive me back to the finish line.
|You can see where the monster hills were.|
|So proud of Ash finishing her FIRST RACE ever! We all assured her that this would be the hardest 5k she'd ever do.|
|My mom crossing her finish line. First 5k she's done in a long time!|
George got 2rd place for the men. He KILLED IT! So proud of him.
|Poor George had to weave through the people finishing their 5k linked arm in arm.|
|Stepping on rocks. Ouch!|
|Go Aunt Lana!|
|That is the most fake smile on my face. I was over it!|
This is a man that Lana runs with. Jack is 76 and has been a runner for a long time. He had run 10 miles that morning and STILL beat me. This man amazes me!
|SO proud of this girl. She had a great time, and she finished strong. Can't wait to do more races with her.|
|They did give you a glass of wine at the end, but I felt like death. Water was all I could stomach.|
They were so sweet! They loved to be petted just like dogs. I may or may not be trying to convince George to let us get a goat. He wouldn't have to mow the lawn!
This is such a gorgeous winery! I will definitely be back for wine and goat petting, just no racing!
