My First 5K

Our church hosted a Pure Energy Event coming off a three-week sermon series on exercise, eating and sleep in order to maximize our potential for Christ here on earth. It was awesome and much needed in my life. During the event there was a 5K run. I have never ran 3 miles in my entire life.

I made it. I ran a 5k. I didn’t stop. I didn’t die. I didn’t even barf at the end! I am so proud of myself.

This is one of my besties, Amy. She is the captain of the Bourbon Chase team in October. She was my cheerleader on the sidelines today. Due to some knee pain she had to sit out for this run. However, she rocked the sidelines for me. Thanks Amy for believing in me.

And here is my biggest cheerleader. Today he came home with a gift bag and an encouraging note about how proud he was of me for starting to run and in the bag was this new running shirt for the event.

But more than the gift meant…he ran with me. He didn’t leave me. He encouraged me when I wanted to quit. I could not have finished as well without him by my side. He knows when to push and when to just support me.

We did it in 29:30! Go team!

Thanks babe you are the best!
