Hope all the mothers out there had a great mothers day! I'm lucky enough to have the worlds greatest mother and although I did not get to see her, I sent her a package of workout goodies. She discovered running in her sixties and works out at the gym regularly. When she's not doing that, she's running around doing everything else. I'm proud to be just like her :)
Saturday was my first 5k race of the season. It's a small, fun race in the neighborhood adjoining ours so I like to support it whenever I can. This year there were a lot more people and it was well organized so I hope it keeps growing!
|My sister and I pre-race. Yes she's a foot taller than me. |
She was born in the 80s AFTER our parents quit smoking :)
I blew away my time from this race 2 years ago by 4 minutes and one second. 45:54 was my time!!!

|This is what we looked like after. Not as pretty but proud!|
The best thing about an early morning race is that when you're done, you still have the whole day to play knowing that you earned it. We went to the lake for the afternoon, got some sun and may have had a few drinks.
|Not all mine I swear. Half a beer is my limit post surgery. Tequila not pictured.|
Now, for the rest of the week, no more drinking :)
Have a happy, healthy week everyone!
