5K Day!

Well, we did it! The 5k is over! It was hotter than we had thought it would be, so that made it harder, I had to stop and walk a few minutes. I could barely keep myself from throwing up at the finish. But we finished and didn't come in last! I even placed 3rd in our age group! Got a cool little trophy and everything :D And Michelle did great too, even though she was sick, so go give her a pat on the back. I'm glad we were able to do this. I'm amazed at the people who ran the marathon and half marathon, I can't even imagine! Even some young teens and older people (70+) ran those. I don't think I could ever be in that good of shape, or enjoy running enough to do that lol. Anyway, I will try to get a few pics of it up later once I get them off my camera. Yay me!

that's awesome Kara!!! I want to start running again, but that means I need to wake up at 6am to do it before the kids wake up. I want to get motivated to do it.
