So, we did the 5k. No one died. Which was awesome. And, I went online and looked up my old time (from May 2009) and it was 27:55, not 29. My goal was to finish under 30 minutes, and guess what!
I did! 27:34 to be exact!
I was the 13th person to cross the finish line, I was the 3rd woman to finish, and I got first place in my division!
This was right before the race: Me, my sister-in-law Amber, and my friend Christy.
And here’s me, coming to the end of the line.
At this point, I was… TIRED.
The girl who passed me and got 2nd of the women waved me on, she was running ahead of me and kept moving her arm for me to come on. It was actually really encouraging and so I kept running. I wouldn’t have beat my time from 2 years ago had she not pushed me. Running is MENTAL.
And my hubs didn’t do so shabby either! He placed 2nd in his division, with a time of 33:04! Here is John, Wesley, and Sam, in 3rd, 2nd and 1st place!
And Christy placed too! She got first in her division with a time of 28:25.
What a fun day!
Me and Hubs
We followed our 3.11 mile run with some tasty burgers at Baker’s Burger Co.
Then later that night Wesley had to marry some folks so I tagged along too. Lucy and I dressed up for the event.
Like my hair? It was so super easy. I just tucked the back of it in the headband. Yeah, that simple.
Lucy played with daddy in the pretty grass.
I forced Wes to take another picture.
And then we found out that Lucy is teething again. She started screaming about 20 minutes into the meal, so we came back home.
She wasn’t a happy camper the whole service.
But we dressed alike, so that was fun! Purple is pretty.
And finally – a before and after picture of me. The one on the right is from me on Lucy’s birthday – June 28, and the one on the left is from yesterday. This is an 8 pound difference. I’m hoping to lose a few more. Running 60 miles over 2 months will help get rid of 8 pounds – in case you were wondering!
Sorry about the quality.
It really helps seeing the change.
I’m going to be busy this week – Subbing Tuesday and possibly Thursday, my dad has surgery on Wednesday (knee – it’s outpatient) and I also have to keep my house sane. AND – my hanging hand towels? Selling. on Etsy. I’ve sold 6 already. To people I don’t know. That is EXCITING. I love selling stuff to people who want to buy it – not just because they know me and wanna help out!
If you live around here and wanna buy some – let me know, or stop by Collins Produce and More in Collins – I’ll have some for sale up there some point this week.
Have a GREAT Monday!
