My first 5k

Today I ran my first 5k. It was awesome! I am one that couldn't run around the block. After watching the biggest loser when they all had to run a 1/2 marathon I hopped off the couch and went outside for a run. It was that moment that made me realize that I could actually run. I just had to start small. I enjoyed it so much that I am already signing up for my second one! This event was put on by my work. It was a small but very successful 5k and I'm so proud that I got to be apart of it! Thanks for my wonderful husband that came to cheer me on and ended up reporting all of the runners times. Thank you to my parents who also came and braved the rain to watch their daughter run.
This was me at the finish line. I was so crazy happy.
I know, nice gut hanging out. But I am proud to
say it's a much smaller gut compared to 6 months ago!!
Lindsey and I. She's a phenominal runner.
She finished at 22 mins. She placed first in our age
group and I placed second!!

Congrats Auntie M!!! We are all so proud of you, so much that you have inspired me and we just bought our jogging stroller, so Maddy can ride while I run.
