I Did It!!!


Sporting my 5K t-shirt. There wasn't anyone to take a picture of me at the actual race. But the shirt proves I did it! I'm not sure what's up with the weird line through the photo.

One of my New Year's Resolutions this year was to run a 5K. Today I completed my goal. I participated in the Chadron Colter Run this morning. Being my first time, I wasn't exactly sure what to expect and didn't realize I needed to listen for my time to be called out as I crossed the finish line. I was so focused on getting there that I didn't hear. It was a bit disheartening to finish and not see my little family there cheering me on - a mental image that I kept in my head while I was training. But with Connor being sick, Jake stayed home with the little ones so I could achieve what I set out to do at the beginning of the year. I'm so grateful for his support, even from home. I did better than I thought I would in the race, considering the last 3 nights have been rather sleepless with Connor. We're still not sure what he has, but are just waiting it out and hope the little guy is on the mend soon. His fever seems to have broken finally so maybe we're in the clear.

Great job! Cute shirt, they're much cuter than they used to be. So sad that your kiddos missed the parade...I hope Connor feels better soon!

Awesome job. I am so proud of you. That totally makes me miss my running days! Anymore 5K's in your future?

Hi Millie. Good for you on your run. I've started sewing lately and sometimes the house work doesn't get as much attention as it should. If Caroline likes dressing up, I've been making dresses for my girls out of adult broom stick type skirts. Call some time when you have a minute.
