5K


On February 27th I ran my first 5K!  It was the Tuacahn Duathlon and 5K and it was so much fun!  It gave me a great feeling of accomplishment and I'm already planning my next one.

I decided that I needed a challenge to help get me in shape and get the baby weight off.  And since my sister had a baby 3 weeks before me, I got her to do it with me so we could get the baby weight off together.  I trained in Cedar City, she trained in St. George, but we called each other everyday to see how our running was going.

The first half of the race was downhill, which was awesome!  I was totally cruising.  Then we had to turn around and run back up the hill.  I didn't stop and walk once on the way down, but I did have to walk a few times on the way back up.  

My time was 33:10 and I got 10th in my age division.

For my next race, I want to beat my time, which I know I can do!


It was so much fun to do the race with my sister!  She came in about a minute before me, so she was there waiting for me at the finish line.  

Aren't sisters the best?
