My First Official 5K
Over the past year I have started to run, I'm still not very good but I'm making progress. Last year Jolie, Ted and myself ran in what we all thought was a 5k. However, according to the GPS it was only 2.7 miles and was not officially a 5K. So a few weekends ago Matt, Jolie, and myself put on our running shoes in hope of attending my first 5K. We decided to run in the Afflicted War Heroes 5K, which the profits went to helping families go overseas to see their wounded soldiers. This was a really fun event and the race took us next to the Jordan River, so it was as peaceful as you can be when you are running. I am still hoping to hit that runner's high I always hear about but it hasn't happened it. I actually finished 5th in my division! Now how many were in my division, who knows but I'm choosing not to think about that. Anyways, here's some pictures of us before and after my first official 5K. I am now trying to convince myself I can tackle a 10k but it seems so long!
