I DID IT!


Today I ran my first ever 5k. Although a 5k is not that far, I am so proud of myself. If you would have asked me a year ago, heck even 6 months ago, if I would be running, I would have laughed my head off. It is amazing what a difference a year can make!!! My time was 27:30. That is faster than I have ever done here in the neighborhood. Yesterday I ran here at home as fast as I could and could only finish in 29 minutes. I think running with friends helped to push me to my best. In the pic above are my friends Sam and Chara Hosom and Teresa Coats. I work with Chara and Teresa. They have been a big encouragement to me as I have adopted this new hobby. A big thank you to all of them for cheering me on the past few weeks as I got ready for today! I cannot think of a better way to spend my 32nd birthday! Now, onto the next race!!!!
