5K Race

Friday night I ran in my first 5K race. Stephanie and I have been training and this was our first race to ever run. Jon, the boys, and my mom were there to support me. Knowing they were at the finish line waiting on me was a great feeling! I finished 6th in my age group! I am proud of Stephanie and myself. We are a little over half way to our goal of running a 10K. Here are a few pics of the night.

After I had my 25th birthday and Stephanie had her 30th birthday we started running together. She has wanted to run a 10k when she turned 30 so I told her that I would love to train with her and we could do it together. We a month into it and we are running 3.5 miles 4 days a week! I am very proud of our progress. When we started we could run for 5 minutes and walk for 2 minutes. Its amazing to see how well we have progressed in a month. We are running our first race on Friday night. We are running a 5k which is 3.1 miles so we should be able to do that no problem. Our goal is the 10k that is 6.3 miles. I am running my 10k on June 27th. I am excited about this and will be feeling good when I can go out and run 6 miles and enjoy it!! I have loved getting back into running and it makes me feel so good! I will be sure to post pics of the race on Friday!! It is going to be 80 degrees and that is the hottest that we have ever run in. We run at 6:30 in the morning and this race is at 6:30pm so it will probably be a challenge. I am excited!! Just wanted to update you on whats going on here.

FYI - We will be on the beach 4 weeks from now!! YAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Soccer Practice w/ the Grasshoppers

I loved going to Coop's soccer practice on Saturday. Jon took him to his first one then all the others have been rained out. He did awesome. He listens to his coach and does a great job at the drills. I am very excited for his first game this Saturday! He just can't wait till Tuesday when he gets his jersey!! :)

Playing around the house

Last Friday we had a great afternoon at the house just playing with the boys. Cooper was in jumping mode so we made him something to jump on and had a blast with him. Colton wanted to join in but just played on the couch that was missing the cushions!

Priscilla Shirer

A group of ladies from our church went to Redemption 2009 with Pricilla Shirer last weekend. It was a great event and I enjoyed getting away with the girls for a change! When it was over on Saturday my Pastor's wife and I had the chance to get our picture made with Priscilla. Enjoy! The picture of the cookie is my favorite part of the day I think! Since I was already downtown I had to go get my cookie. I love them so much and it tasted amazing! Anyone need to go downtown for anything?!?!

Shopping @ Kroger

I very rarely shop at Kroger but decided to go there today because a big storm was coming and I could get in and out alot quicker. The boys LOVE the car that is attached to the cart. Colt was honking his horn the whole time and Coop was wanting me to race the other baskets! We had a great time and will definately be going to Kroger more often. The last pic is of Coop, who won the race, Kyle Bush does that when he wins. He is a Nascar driver for those of you not into the races like us :)
