Well, I did it. I ran a 5K. I finished a 5K. It was something else... I thought that asking my hubby to take pictures would be a good idea. I'm not having second thoughts. (I'm glad he did though - when I gave birth to Carter I was so self-conscious about myself I wouldn't let any take pictures of me in the hospital. I regret that now...)

Anyway, the race. I met my goals - I didn't walk and I finished in under 35 minutes. I think my time was 33:31, but I don't know that for sure.
Heather, me & Brandi. I was so fun running with theses girls!! It was Heather's first 5K and Brandi's 2nd. They both are running in the Color Run - we will be in Texas.
(We were joking that we should have taken a picture in an ambulance just for fun!!)
My mom's sister, Jo, came down from South Dakota. They did the one-mile fun run/walk.
This is my trophy! I finished 36th over all, but 2nd in my age bracket! Bonus!!!!
So that's the story of my first 5K. I will do another one and maybe more after that. I might even work my way up to a 10K. Honestly, my biggest challenge now is finding time to run AND having someone around to watch my kids!! Currently, I run right after work so they are still at daycare, but I don't know if my daycare people would be very excited about keeping them an hour longer, if I decide to train for a 10K. :)
