Today, my whole family decided to run the 5k here in town that the hospital was sponsoring. This is the first time me and the girls have ever ran/walked one. I have been trying to gear up for it , since I am the most unlikely person to do this! :) Joe loves to run, but not me! He has even run the Chicago marathon! Don't think that is in my future.... But doing a 5K at 40 for the first time...I am pretty proud! :)
There were over 100 people that ran or walked the 5K. Some of our friends, Chris & Erin & their kids, ran it with us! It was fun for Kassidy to be able to run with friends! Karlee pushed Klaire in the stroller the entire way! (She is going to feel that in the morning! :) Joe finished in 26 minutes and then came back to get us! The whole family was across the finish line in 47 minutes! (each at a different time) I ran over 1/2 of it...so not too bad! :) I finished in 42 min. 49 sec. - I was expecting 1 hour! ha!
It was a lot of fun and a great way for our family to exercise together! We are planning to do another one in 2 weeks! My goal is to run more than 1/2 of it! WOW- never would have thought that I would look forward to running......funny what turning 40 will do to a person!
