So, I did it! I ran my first 10 k.(6.2 miles) I have been enjoying my running a lot again, now that the boys are a little bigger. Having a treadmill helped throughout the winter, but now that the sun is coming up at a decent hour, I have been getting out most mornings before Matt leaves for work. I have found that it really gets my day off to a good start. Most of you know that running has been a passion of mine for about 10 years, but with the addition of two babies at one time, well, you get the idea. I get that jogging strollers are cool for a lot of people, but I gotta tell you... it was fun with Caleb... One baby. But shoving 2 big babies around in what may as well be a camping trailer for 4.5 miles at just the right time of day, between Caleb's pre-school and afternoon naps just wasn't gonna happen on this home front. Anyway, that doesn't have anything to do with anything... But I finally ventured out and entered a "run". And got the t-shirt. At 6.2 miles, I finished at right at one hour. It was tons of fun, and I look forward to entering more runs for the fun of it. Here are some pictures that Matt took of me running and crossing the finish line... When I met the boys there after the run, Caleb ran up to me and shouted "I'm proud of you!!!"
Entry Fee for Race: $15 dollars
Massage for sore muscles: $50 (in my dreams)
Son telling Mom he's "proud" of her: Priceless. ;o)
