Run, Forrest, Run!

Jake and I ran the Little Elm Rock the Doc 5k this morning.
I got a trophy for getting third place in my age division!
Let's not talk about my time......or how many people were actually in my age division.
Let's just celebrate the shiny trophy.

I put it next to my bowling trophy. My desk now eminates athletic prowess.

Really: Our goal as a couple was to run the entire race, as in not stopping to walk at all. THAT we did. The goal next 5k will be reducing the time, naturally. It was cloudy, humid, and beautiful out there. I started out with such a rotten attitude, but by the time I began the race I was really excited and had a great time.

Good job, Maren! I have been thinking it would be cool to do a marathon, but I have to get in shape first... and that is the hard part! I'm proud of you guys for not walking the whole time, AWESOME!

You didn't tell me you got a trophy...way to go! One race I did I got 4th in my age group, which sounds impressive until you find out there were only 8 of us. I still told people I got 4th, no one has to know the other details.
