Those of you who know me know I really enjoy exercising. However, my one vice in the area is running. I don't like it. I know it's great for for the body so I'll do it whenever I can talk myself into it, but it's last on my enjoyment list. Anyway, my sister Lisa has been wanting to do a 5k for some time now, so I let her talk me in to running the Wasatch Woman Love Your Body 5k/10k race in Sugar House. I was really not looking forward to it, but just like all accomplishments, I was really glad I did it, after the fact.
I get to have a bragging moment to say that Lisa and I both did awesome. We had personal goals we wanted to reach and we both did very well. I was able to shave 7 minutes off my time from my first race in May and I came in #222 out of 740 racers. I was so stoked. And this course was way tougher, with steep hills and lousy heat. Lisa also did awesome by coming in way under her goal time. We were happy. It was awesome doing a race with her. It was a great day and we're planning on doing more races *shudder* in the future. I may hate the running, but I love the feeling of crossing the finish line.
Me crossing the finish line. My face is so awful haha feel free to laugh, but keep in mind it was hot!
Getting congratulatory loves from the husband.
Yes, I'm a boob and cried when I finished.
Here comes Lisa! I love that she is smiling.
we're hugging. Just wanted to document that ;)
We're both SO glad that it's over
I'm so glad I have a husband who will wake up at 6:45 with me and come support me. Love ya, babe!
After picture. Don't we look lovely?
The girls with their pop. My mom was also there, and I do have a picture of that, but it's way awful. So Mom, that's why it's not up. But a big heartfelt thanks to you and Dad for coming out to cheer us on. We love you guys!
