Early Morning 5K

I ran a 5K this morning. This is the first race I have ran with just me and my ipod. I was a bit nervous. I have always ran with a group of friends. As you know, when girlfriends get together they love to talk, and we do!

When I first began running my friend Teri and I ran the Payson Onion Day 5K. We were pleased with our race until the guy running behind us said, "You would both run a lot faster if you didn't talk." We laughed because he was probably right and we beat him!

Today I didn't talk, well I sang in my head but that doesn't count! I ran and I ran hard. I couldn't have talked. Last year I ran a 5K and today I beat that time by 4 minutes!! I guess he was right and I bet I would still beat him!

I am running a 10mile race on June 12. Just me and my trusted ipod! I will let you know how it goes!

You go girl!! I can't wait to hear how the next race goes.

I was looking at your book shelf. I just finished The Help and LOVED it! I've actually heard of some people not liking it, I don't understand that. The Peacegiver is one of my all time favorites!

Good for you!! That is awesome. Riley is running his Marathon on Saturday the 12th. It is probably in conjunction with the race you are doing. I hope I get to see you! It's been WAY too long.

Good luck!!
