Look what I did!

On Saturday I did my first 5k. I was terrified! I couldn't sleep the night before (I tossed and turned and kept waking Fred up) and the morning of I was hoping/praying they'd cancel because it was raining. Nope, not a chance.

Sydney and I got there to find families (families meaning: mom, dad, kid #1, kid #2, kid #3 and brand new 4 day old baby) participating. Heck if these moms could do it pushing a stroller and taking car of 3 other little ones then I could do it!

And I did! I didn't stop once!! I finished in 31:26 not a fabulous time for you runners out there but for me that was amazing! My goal was to do it in less than 40:00. I'm pretty stoked because I hadn't trained much and honestly thought I'd be sitting on a curb somewhere sweating, holding myself, and waiting for my mom and Fred to come find me.

I think I just might like this running thing!

are you nuts? did you really say "like" and "running" in one sentence?
