|Me and Ali after the race|
On April 19th I ran my first 5k since having Madalyn, and in my opinion, I rocked it. Did I run it in 16 min or something crazy like the girl in first place did? Heck no. I didn't even run in in under 30, but it was the first time I have ever ran that 5k and not stopped to walk once. And for that I am proud, and I know I can do more. I hope to run many more races this year. The weight sure is taking its time to come off of me, but I feel like my fitness level is great! I realized that I can do hard things, and my body is thanking me for that. Someday this weight will get off my body, but for now I am truly grateful for the level of fitness I have achieved.
|33:33. Better than when I trained|
The morning of the 5k was an early one. We were up at 5, much to Sams grief. I am so glad I have such a supportive husband. He hates early mornings more than I hate fish, and yet he was willing to be there and cheer me on, even writing this way cute FB post. (I love social media declarations of love.)

After the race the 4 of us plus our cute kids went out to breakfast, where I ate my newly burned calories plus some. (hence the weight not coming off) To top off my great day, Sam let me sleep for almost 3 hours that afternoon!! The kids slept with me while he got dirt for our yard. Such a great guy I have.
Here's to more races!!
