Ready, Set, GO!!!

I got to participate in my first race this weekend and it was so fun! I didn't do so great on my run-it is hard to find a good pace in a crowd of people! I will do it again for sure though. It supported and raised money for the Children's Hospital and it was heart touching to see kids being pushed in their wheelchairs for the 5k! I did the 5k run and my friend Angie-the one in the pic next to me-and her friend Jen did the 10k...and they did AWESOME! Angie had tonsillitis (SP?) and still did it-GO ANGIE! I am excited to do another 5k and improve my time by many strides and then it's on to a 10k! It was great seeing my family there and supporting me-thank you sweetie for bringing the kids-I love you! The pics are my before and after.

Congrats! Wow - you look great! Keep the posts coming - it's motivation for me. I dream of a 5k in my near future. Sad huh? Considering most people dream of marathons...hahaha. Good job!

Congrats girl! You should be proud. Meg ran her 1/2 marathon on Saturday here in Hartford and I went to watch--it was so inspiring, I have committed myself to doing it next year. You can be one of my inspirations now! :)
