Picture of the Week!

I call it: Hooray!!!

This is Run/ Walker # 199 checking in. That's right, today I officially finished my first 5K. Overall, I'd say it was a huge success. I was greeted Friday morning with my bag o goodies for participating in the race. It had so much "swag" (stuff we all get) that I was just so excited I could hardly stand it. My kids in 2nd grade especially enjoyed me teaching math with my relaxation mask on, :). Then we got to the race this morning there was even more stuff, Starbucks coffee (not sure who drinks coffee b4 running,) donuts, oranges, apples, granola bars, I love seizing the value of free stuff. I did the whole race 3.1 miles in about 45 minutes. I admit I could have run more than I did, but I just wanted to take in every moment, as mentioned earlier, exercising is not my thing. But maybe it just might become my thing...who knows what's next for this gal...maybe golf, ha, probably not!

Drum roll, balloons, fireworks and a massage! Yey Whitney. You are the WOMAN of the year in my book.
Thanks for finishing what you started. Who knows, beside golf, you might want to take up mountain climbing with Matt.
Oh, and by the way, you are looking good girlie. I am so proud of you. My lungs feel better already. Love ya, Mom

Yeah, Whitney! Running is great and running a 5K is a big first step. I ran a lot before pregnancy, though nothing more than a 10K once a year, and hope to get back into it after Jack comes. Thanks for the congrats you sent our way! Maybe one day we'll both have Jacks!
