Done and DONE!

So, remember how two months ago I said I was going to run a 5k?  You don't?  Well, check it out HERE.  Well guess, what...I did it!  I convinced another sister and a sister-in-law to do it with me and along with my original crazy sister who had the idea, the four of us ran on Thanksgiving morning.  What was supposed to be only 3.1 miles was actually 3.5 and we kicked it.  I am actually loving it and have plans to run another 5k in about three weeks and then I start training for a 10k.  Woohoo!!

Me, Emma, and Brieann

Congratulations FV neighbor - Denise did the same thing on Thanksgiving - I'm impressed - I couldn't do that.

Great Job guys. BTW everyone looks great

Denise said...

Yay! I did my first on Thanksgiving too. It was fun. I wonder why yours was 3.5? I think a 5K is supposed to be 3.2, but we are dumb Americans, huh? Good job!

Denise, it's supposed to be 3.1 but this wasn't an "official" race, it was one put on by one of the wards in my sister's stake. I guess they couldn't find a route that was exactly 3.1, so the messed with it and came up with 3.5. No matter.

I'm doing another one in three weeks and am pretty excited about it!

Way to go! Good luck with the next race. I can't believe how much Kathy has changed since we were teenagers together. It's not fair that she looks so good!
