a whim and a win


On Saturday morning Kory took Hayden to the ranch, and Emma had a primary practice...so I entered a 5K race to benefit the women's center. It was SO much fun! My good friends Jenny and Marc ran it too - and I was so proud of both of them! Jenny looked like a champ crossing the finish line. I felt really good during the race, and thought I could have run it faster...however...I just wanted to finish under 30 min since I have not been very good at running lately. I finished with a PR of 26.35!!! I was thrilled! Third place in my age group, so I was very happy with that. I was kinda wishing my sister in law Abbie had been there, she would have taken her age group no problem. Sigh. The weather was so perfect, and even though it was a little cold the sun was wonderful.

Oh man, I really DO wish I could have run it with you. The day looks beautiful! Nothing like a late Fall jog on a crisp morning with the I-pod. (Deep breath in...) I can just smell that air. Congrats on the PR!!! Woo-woo. I think sometimes when you give your legs a break they come back and surprise you. At least that's what seems to happen to me. 1st...2nd...3rd....they're all the same 'cause you know you kicked a bunch of other peoples butts. hahah! We were going to sign up for a 4-miler on Thanksgiving, but it's already full...2,000 peeps!
