First 10K!

Can someone please tell me why I am so bad at updating? I wish I was better. I will work on it.

I wanted to update you all on my first 10K! Last Sunday I ran the Freedom Run 5000 to raise money for girl's schools in Afghanistan. It was such an amazing cause and I was so glad to be a part of it! The run itself went okay. I have had some breathing troubles for the past couple weeks. It turns out I've been low on Omega 3's so I've been taking fish oil capsules like it's going out of style. Hopefully it fixes me up soon! I was also struggling with allergies since this race was held in a farm area! I had some great support - Dan, my mom, and my grandparents!

I have my next 10K coming up on July 9th for the Underwear Affair which will be SO much fun. Thankfully, it's in downtown Vancouver so I don't think my allergies will be acting up as bad. Wait until you see my outfit for this race!

Here are some photos documenting my first race!

Congrats!! Such an awesome moment! I can't believe I'm here on Whidbey Island, WA right now and Vancouver is so close. I'll visit it someday :)

Good luck with the next 10k!

my first 10K was in downtown Vancouver (Sun Run) was an awesome run; I imagine any run downtown would be nice.
