This blog is simply the story about my little life
with my sweet family that the Lord has blessed me with
and the day in, day out things that we do.
It basically is my online diary/photo album of our life.
I'm glad you're here!

My first 5k!!!!

So last Saturday I told you that I was about to participate in my first 5k and today I'm going to share with you all about it.
The energy in the air was amazing!
I met my son, Cameron, and his roommate, Dan there. They were running it and I knew I'd be left in the dust.
I was so glad when I ran into a couple of buddies of mine, Audrey and Shannon. They were just like me, never done this before and we all felt nervous and kind of dorky. It cracked me up that Audrey said she tanned for this and both girls were wearing make-up! I was wearing lipstick and earrings! haha!
Ready, set, go!
We were walking and I saw Cameron run by, so I got a picture of him!
Good job Cameron!
Run like the wind!
We even had these little girls handing us water! I felt like a true athlete!
We saw a garage sale and stopped for it! haha! We couldn't resist!
Here we are going through the finish line! They said our names over the loud speaker and everyone was clapping! They had loud fun music playing and handed us waters. I loved it!!!
Cameron waited for me at the finish line! What a sweet and handsome boy I have!
The race was called, Run with the Dawgs, thus there were dogs there!
He's huge!!!
My new lucky number, good old #112! You were with me through it all!
Been there, done that, got the t-shirt!!!! Haha!

Seriously though, this time I walked most of it and jogged just a tiny bit, and basically took my time and laughed and had fun. It took me 1 hour and 6 minutes, but now I have a goal to try and beat. I thought this was a great experience and I can't wait to do it again!

"You shall walk in all the way that the Lord your God has commanded you, that you may live, and that it may go well with you, and that you may live long in the land that you shall possess." Deuteronomy 5:33

Hugs, Sharon
