This morning was Charlotte's Race for the Cure and I ran my first 5k! Not the greatest time, but I ran it and I'm very proud of myself. It took six months of training, but I did it. I never thought I'd run a mile and now I can run slightly over three!
I didn't get to see GQ's soccer practice today because timing wise it didn't work out with the race, but they brought me home some beautiful flowers as congratulations. Aren't they pretty?! There is a rose from the husband and one from GQ and the mums are from my in-laws.
I never could have run this 5k without motivation and support from family and friends. I probably would have given up my training at week four when I had to start running for 10 mins, I think. So thank you family! Thank you friends! And THANK YOU PAULA for running with me this morning! Love you all!
