This past Saturday my sister and I ran our first 5K race.
The run was down the beach. It was a very nice scenic route!
The only downside was the weather. It was a little chilly for me!
A local priest gave us the sweetest blessing.
**I needed that! Haha**
And off we went!!!!!!!!!!!
The first half of the course had the wind just pushing right against us!
**deep breaths, deep breaths…get my breathing under control***
We had a great little cheering section (parentals and my brother in law)
And it was so much fun to see them keep popping up along the course!
**I think someone should have videoed them, screaming and waving
to us and then running to the car to catch us again, they popped up
like 4 times! **
Once we reached the boardwalk, the wind decreased and it was
soooo beautiful. That was my favorite part of the run!
**to be running along the beach like that, especially that beach
… I pretty much grew up there...was such a great experience**
The last stretch was fun because you can see and hear ppl cheering!
**of course there was our cheering section!! They really kept me
So, we did it! We RAN the entire race too! I’m soo happy that I was
able to experience this was my sister! **♥♥ Love you! ♥♥ You are the best! You are a constant inspiration to me! You are an incredible, sister, Mommy♥ and friend! You are beautiful inside, out and upside down!**
So, where do we go from here? Well, we have our sights set on a
Mini triathlon this summer and half marathon in Miami next year!
I really appreciate all the love ♥, support and encouragement from all
of you! YOU believed in me, when I wasn’t so sure! But, just proves
we CAN accomplish ANYTHING if we really want!!
Have a beautiful week!!!
