5K

I have been holding a little bit of information from you, but I got a picture of the event today so I decided it was time to share.

I ran in a 5K race on Saturday. I have been running for a few months, saw that there was going to be one in our city and just decided to do it. I also was encouraged by my fellow runner, Nancy, to sign up (even though she was conveniently in Hawaii on Saturday). I really loved doing it and was really proud that I ran the whole thing without hyperventilating or dying!

Here's the great part...I won 1st place! Although there were a lot of people in the race, there must not have been many in my age division. I have gotten the biggest laugh out of my 1st place prize and I have to say that it's the first time I have ever won 1st place in ANYTHING!

I'll let you know when my marathon debut is...
