That was my time for my first competitive 5K on Sunday. Not too shabby.

My "gym boyfriend" and I had set my time, with no running and at a pace I felt truly comfortable with, at just under 43:00 last week. So to come in under 41:00 was amazing.

Seriously when I crossed the finish line and saw the time, I wanted to cry, but there was no one there with me, so I held it together and was excited all over again 20 minutes later when the rest of my team finished.

And we did good things, in the process.

We remembered and honored Denise, my sister-in-law's sister, and all those who have bravely fought brain cancer.

And our team, in its second year, was one of 547 teams that raised $2.1 million toward finding a cure for brain cancer.


  1. Congratulations! Love when you say my "first" competitive 5k.....keep it up!

  2. I wish I could have been there for this. I so would have loved to tie our running shoes together and hit the road. I am so proud of you!!
