We Weren't Last!!

Today I ran my first 5K...I use the term "ran" loosely.  But whatever.  I did it and even though I don't have an official time, I know it was around forty minutes.  Thanks to Sunny who ran it with me and told me how cool I was the whole time.  And a special thanks to the eighty year old woman who got rocks in her shoes and had to stop so I didn't have to come in last place.

Congratulations - I know you had a lot of preparation going on with all the farming you've been doing -see it really paid off - farming is hard work, as is running.Now you should start training for the triathalon that Stephanie is preparing for in April (by the way, it's in Hawaii). Congrats again.
