|The Girls. (Kam, Sarah, Mom, Me, Whitney)|
There were people everywhere, the number never ceases to amaze me.
|The groups of people!|

We waited for them to send off the first few waives and then it was our turn 5..4..3..2..the shotgun sounds and I am hot out of the gate - well at least as soon as I can get past the crowds. My adrenaline is rushing and I am running fast. It doesn't take me long to realize that I won't be able to keep up with this speed if I want to finish the full 5K so I slow down a little and try to keep a solid pace. (Harder then it seems.) Kam took the lead and finished strong, I was so excited to see the finish line and I pushed hard to run to the end.

We waited a short time for everyone to join us then we gathered at Ann Morrison park grabbed some snacks and rested for a bit. We then headed back to the hotel to shower and clean up then we headed to one of my favorite restaurants...Thai Paradise (Best thai food I have had) My Mom was against this but finally promised to give it a try. She wasn't the biggest fan but I thank her for being a good sport.

This one wasn't exactly on my list but it does relate to getting healthy! Now I just have to keep going!
