CVS/pharmacy Downtown 5k

Melanie decided to enter this 5k road race, and while having never run a complete 5k before, but being fiesty of spirit, proceeded to totally rock out, exceeding her own expectations and finishing with a time of 39:48.

Looking down Church Street

I neglected to bring the camera to the start of the race, so after seeing our hero (Melanie) off, I ran up the hill to our apartment and got it. On my way back downtown, I paused at the top of Church Street to take this picture. The road at the bottom of this hill is part of the race course, and you can see some of the lead runners already passing if you zoom in. That's not why I included this picture, though; I just liked the sunlight on the wall of the old stone church.

Sweaty and still going strong, our hero approaches the finish line. In the background, spectators line the sidewalk in front of the Providence Place Mall.

Cool-down

After a personal-best finish, our hero cools off with free bottled water and the company of her fans and fellow Sensata athletes (not pictured, although they really do exist). From under the shade of a tree, the sun drenched the capitol building shines in the background.
