And The Winner Is......


Last fall I started running and I had set a goal to run in a 5K run in the spring. (You have to start somewhere right?!) Well, last Saturday I did just that! I even convinced Cecil to join in with me---it was a lot of fun---I only say that because I beat Cecil to the finish line by 2 whole minutes!! That right there made it all worth it :) Afterwards, Cecil informed me that I sound like a herd of elephants when I run ( I am apparently a very loud runner)and he told me we need to work on "my form" but I kindly like to remind him who came across the finish line at 27:05, #16 overall out of about 80 who registered.......YEP!!---ME THAT'S WHO!! I love you Cec!---wanna race again?!?

The funny thing is that we both won medals!! Cecil took 3rd in Males 30-39 age group and I took 3rd in Females 30-39. We had a good laugh over that...and I may be speaking for just myself but I think there will be more races in our future!

That's rad...love that you guys did that! Isn't it something when you start making comparisons with times and age groups....your like, what the ?? And a medal came out of it. That's what I'm talking about. Great job!
