5K or the highway

so i had the best weekend evarrr!
mama surprised me on friday evening and told me that i was finally old enough to participate in my first race and that we were going to do a 5K on saturday morning!!  

in preparation for the big event, we laid out my best harness. 

then we went sleepy early so that we could get our race legs good and rested.

normally, saturdays are all about being kinda lazy and snoozin' late.  this racing stuff is serious business, though, because we had to get up at 7am.  we dressed, ate a very light breakfast, and got right in the car to drive to the race site.
apparently, it was really cold...30ish degrees.  i didn't realize it cuz my fur is uber insulating, but mama kept hopping around in place because she was so chilly.  when the race finally started, i tried to focus on maintaining a nice trot so as to keep mama working hard and toasty warm.  the only problem was that there were so many people, and i just wanted to say *hihi* to all of them!!  i'm not going to lie...it was a little hard to stay on task at the beginning.  i eventually found my groove, and mama and i finished strong.  i can't wait to do another one!!
