5K Accomplishment

I did it! I ran in my first 5K on Sunday. It was the "Bog Jog" in Grayland, WA. The run took us by cranberry bogs and if you did the 10K, onto the beach. It was a beautiful morning, though very cold. I didn't come in last, and I didn't walk at all so I accomplished my goal. My friend, Susan, convinced me to do this and I'm glad I did. We are already looking for our next race - maybe a Santa run in December!
That's me on the right (#332)...we are about to high five Susan's 3 year old son at the half way point. Isn't it sweet that her husband was waiting there to encourage us and take photos?! My hubby & kids were at the finish line to do the same.
