My First 5k Run/ Blog Awards

Happy 4th of July everyone. I hope everyone is having a great day with family. This morning, I got to run my first 5K to celebrate 4th of July. This is a huge accomplishment for me because it was my first time doing something like this. I feel very proud of myself and I thank my hubby for being there and cheering for me. Here are two pics from my race.

  2. wow- Thanks for the award. I was just going to post about your 5K and then was totally surprised when I saw the award an that you passed it on to me. thanks for thinking of me.

    Now CONGRATULATIONS on your first 5K. I remember my first 5K- I was nervous and excited at the start and really proud at the finish.
    i ran my first 5 mile race last November in Central Park in NYC the weekend of the NYC Marathon (I am always in NYC for marathon week since I am one of the event planners for the title sponsor).

    I am not much of a runner, but that was a big goal for me.

    My Husband is a marathoner so I have great respect for runners.

    Congratulations again. You look great in your finish photo.
