First 5K of 2013 and Giveaway Extended

On Saturday, hubby and I participated in our first 5K for 2013. Two of my friends and co-workers were supposed to participate but one got sick the day of the race. So, I walked with my other friend since she would be by herself and this was her first 5K. This was totally fine because I haven’t been running at all, and while I could have run/walked, it was probably more enjoyable to walk. This gave hubby the chance to run his first 5K solo. And he was speedy!!! So proud of him and amazed at his ability to go so fast with no training!!

Here’s a photo of us before the race.


It was a little chilly and in the 30s. It was ok, except for when we had to walk into the wind. This was the smallest 5K we’ve ever participated in—a very small group of people but boy were the organizers good cheerleaders! We got lots of high fives and cheers our way.

The whole atmosphere motivated me to want to get running again and do some more 5Ks. Oh, if the weather would just get nicer! We still have snow in the forecast! I want to make some big changes because what I’m doing now isn’t working.

Oh, and I guess my friend and I were on the news walking the 5K. lol. I tried to find it online but I couldn’t find it. Bummer!

Have you entered to win the digital magazine subscription yet? I’m extending the deadline until tomorrow 5 p.m. central!


  1. Yay for the first 5k of 2013! I can't believe you all are still having snow! Our weather turned around a couple weeks ago and has been basically nice since. Hang in there. Too bad you couldn't find yourself online. Haha

  2. I keep wanting to get back into running but it's still so cold's supposed to be spring already! I want warm weather :)

  3. Aww, I think I'd prefer to be in a smaller group for a 5k... not that I ever do 5ks mind you but IF I did lol congrats :)

  4. that's awesome!! I really want to do the color run its supposedly coming in October!!! I cant wait!!

  5. Super well done on your 5k. That's always an achievement in itself. Congratulations :)
