My First Number

Last Saturday our church held the 6th annual 5K Run and 1 Mile Fun Run. I decided to give it a try and walk the 5 miles. Jacob ran the 1 mile. I have to say it was a lot of fun! I'm totally addicted now and will be finding more to participate in and take the whole family. I came in #252 out of 289-wow! I finished in 43minutes and 28 seconds. I learned very quickly that these events take on a personality of their own. It'a all about the clock. We'll see if I stay motivated to actually run next year! However, I will not let that 60 year old man beat me again! What was his name-I believe it was Tony Hewatt (our Minister of Evangelism)! Ha Ha His time was 24 minutes. Somehow, I don't think I will beat him.

That's awesome! I've been wanting to run that for like, 5 years, and something keeps coming up on the race weekend.

I'm so proud of you! Maybe we'll run it together next year!
