I'm Back!

Today was so fun! Back when we lived in Oregon I developed a love for running 5 and 10k's. One of the things that made it so much fun was our friends JoeLisa. I think that actually may be a big reason that in the year and a half we've lived here I haven't done one because I've been missing my running partner.

Well the show must go on and today I had something.....(not quite sure what) to prove. Maybe the fact that I am 34, have lymphedema in one leg and am a few days shy of being 7 months pregnant I don't know, but whatever it was I'm glad I did it. I ran the Easter in Lehi 5k, my first in Utah, and it felt soooo good, (- the slight amt of pee that trickled out as I ran,geez.....)!!

Ry kept putting on the pressure last night saying what if you won honey and I said I'm not doing this to win, I'm just going for a personal victory in that I've never done a race this prego before and that was my mindset going into it. Well you can guess how shocked I was when I rounded the corner close to the finish and could see the clock; 28:45 it said and I could'nt believe it. I kicked it into gear once I saw that and ran my big belly right thru that finish at full speed with my little girls that met me at the finish to run thru with me at 29:05! What in the world???? I'm not sure how I managed to do that this far along I've only trained a handful of times in the last couple weeks but whatever it was it really did feel so good to be doing one of the things I love again!!
