Last Saturday was the RiverRun 10k! Our big goal race! I was sooo nervous! But happy that morning because the weather was great! It was in the 60s! Paul dropped me off downtown at about 630a and I met up with Kim right away! I had an idea that I wanted to write a message in tape on the back of my shirt for the race. Kim said she wanted to too, so we did this:

I remember passing the 5k mark and being SO excited! And after the 5k mark, it seemed to get much easier! I was able to go faster with less effort and felt pretty good all around.

I ran mile 1 for Elliott, because everything I do begins and ends with her.
I ran mile 2 for Paul, because he supports me in everything I do.
I ran mile 3 for Kim because it's always tough for her to get through from 2.5-3 miles, and because she is my biggest cheerleader!
I ran mile 4 for my dad, because this is a part of my life that he never got to see, and I know he would be really proud of me!
I ran mile 5 for my mom, because I know that she could do this too if she wanted to.
And I ran mile 6.2 for me, because I deserve this!

Other than all that, I have been taking a lot of classes at the YMCA. I really like this one called Hip Hop Hustle!
Next up, half marathon training!!!
