"The LORD your God is with you, He is mighty to save. He will take great delight in you,
He will quiet you with His love, He will rejoice over you with singing. "

My First 5K!!

So me and these two sweet friends, Megan and Lesley made it a goal to run a 5K before the end of 2011. We are 3 Mama's with 10 kiddos between all of us and it was TIME to set a goal for our health and mainly for ourselves. :) Meg and I started running in September 3-4 times a week early in the mornings doing the Couch to 5K program. There were many mornings that were tough, but there is nothing like having some one there beside you cheering you on to go a little further each time. We were so excited (and a little nervous) to run our first 5K for a wonderful cause. It was also fun to see my cousin, Brad and his family there to support his friends by running the race (he came in 3rd!! Awesome!)

It was a beautiful day for a run! Here we are about to cross the finish line. Love that we stared and finished together! (And yes, that is my son running beside me. :) Fun memory!

My sweet family came to cheer me on. Love them!
Love you, girls! Could NOT have done this without you! WE.ARE.RUNNERS!! Hoping and training to run my 1st half marathon in 2012! We will see! ;)
