Oh yeah!

Happy Sunday y’all!  Some of you guys may know this, but two goals on my fitness goals list were to 1. complete a 5k while running the entire time, and 2. to complete a 5k in under 30 minutes.  These goals did not have to occur together, they just had to happen.  Yesterday I participated in the Greenways 5k.  Missy and the team (along with myself) shot off the starting gun and then I hopped in line and actually did the race too.  The course was along one of my favorite places to run at so I was hoping to accomplish at least one goal.  Well, guess what.  I crossed the finish line in 30:44, barely missing my goal time, BUT I ran the whole entire time.  Go me!!  Also, I was second in the Athena division and 3rd in my age division.  Yeah, I’m cool. 

After the race, I headed downtown to stuff marathon goody bags for about six hours.  I met so many wonderful people, including a fellow blogger, Kim Emert.  Kim will be running her very first half this Sunday and I could not be more proud.  Go Kim!  Such a great day overall and could not feel more blessed.  Race day is offically one week away.
