Today, I did something that I never thought I would ever do. I ran in my first race. Granted it was a 5k, but STILL. You all know me...ME RUNNING?? I was motivated to do this by a very close friend of mine, Johanna Vander Wall. How she actually convinced me of this, I'm still trying to figure out. But to say the least, we did it. We ran the Irish Jig in East G.R. and it was awesome. She had to yell at me a bit at the end, but she got me to the finish line. :) Thank you Johanna for the encouragement and friendship. Along with us was a friend of Jo's, Tonda and Jason. Jason of course whipped us buy more than ten minutes. :) It was a great day and I can safely say I will be running more in the future.
