5k fever!

For years, I have been wanting to start running competitvely again and this weekend I finally did it!!! On Saturday, a few of us from the gym ran in a 5k at Lakes Park to support breast cancer. It was awesome!!! For my first time out I did pretty well, coming in first place in our group and 19th overall. It was a perfect morning, the weather was beautiful and it was fun to run with so many friends. The best part of the race was when I got near the finish line and Ryan and the girls were in the crowd cheering me on :) Emma keeps saying that when she gets big enough, she wants to start running too. I can't wait for that day!! Hopefully this is just the start of many more races to come...my goal is to make it to the Naples half marathon in January. Afterwards, Ryan and Emma stayed at the park for a while to do some fishing. They didn't catch anything, but they had fun trying!
