I ran a 5k and I came in second!!
First of all, shame on everyone who doesn't think I would place second in a 5k! All those cupcakes make me run fast.
So it all started this morning at 7:40 when me and my friend Lindsey (and our crazy enthused fans, aka our husbands) arrived in South Daytona for the 12th annual 5k.
Okay, I lie.
So the only thing interesting about a race is the beginning and the end...oh and the Award Ceremony, don't worry I'll get to that.
So of course I wanted to wait to get my award. I was a little nervous, but a little excited too.
When they finally called my name, I walked up, my acceptance speech prepared...when...they couldn't find my plaque!!!! I'm standing there in front of hundreds (well one hundred) people for running a whopping time of 36.03 minutes, to get my second place plaque, and they can't find it! Finally, the award presenter said, into the mic, "We'll find it Francesca, there's been a mix up." So I retreated back to my fans (who were hysterically laughing) empty handed.
But, I got a plaque! Impressed?
