My First Real 5k!!

So, on Monday night I ran in my first official 5k race! It was for Heritage school, where my friend Kristi's husband Ben works. It was really fun. There weren't a ton of people there which was nice. I ran it in 34 minutes!! Me and Kristi stuck together the whole time and it was really fun chatting with her as we ran. I was pretty well prepared for the race so it wasn't that hard for me. The next one I know I'm running in for sure is the Freedom Run on the 4th of July! Anyone that's interested (hint hint Lisa) is welcome to join me!

Way to go Steph! I'm so proud of you!!!! You're going to L-O-V-E the Freedom Run! I'm trying figure out how I can for sure be here to run in that one!

Steph,

That is awesome, I totally want to run with you. Brett got me a new jogging stroller for mother's day, so I am going to start running again. I told Brett he had to call and cancel the insurance and he wouldn't. Tyler was really sick all last week. I am putting Brett in charge of it, I gave him Brandon's number.

Congratulations, Steph! 34 minutes!!! That's smokin! I am such a wimp and want to run a 5k but don't think I can do it w/o stopping every 1/2 mile. any pointers?

Congratulations, that's so awsome. I just signed up to run a 1/2 marathon. I've never even run in any sort of race so it's kind of scary. Now that you are you becoming a regular race runner, you should come join me. It's not until the end of August so there is still plenty of time to train. A bunch of us from high school are getting together on Friday and I wanted to see if you wanted to come too. Let me know if you will be around.
