I survived my first 5k! It was actually kind of awesome. We already signed up for our next one. =)
My crazy SIL went all out to make this a memorable event for me. She secretly videotaped me as we crossed the finish line. (I won't be sharing that since it's the most embarrassing 30 seconds of my life! I look like I'm being pushed along with a cattle prod!) She made a secret sign that she passed off to Magnum and Stud to hold up as I crossed the finish line. AND, she made me a freakin' medal!
The boys presented me with these after the run.
I wasn't as thrilled with him when he took time during the service to completely embarrass me by having me STAND UP while he told the whole church about how I had just completed my first 5K that morning! Aye! They were all very sweet, and most found me after the service to offer their congratulations. I'm thinking I probably should have told them ahead of time, and maybe I would have been able to bump up the total amount of funds raised for the Ronald McDonald House! :P
Anyhoodles, like I'm said, I survived, and I'm just glad I'm still here to tell you about it. =)
The next one we're going to do is The Biggest Loser 5K. I believe it's in August. I'll keep you updated. You're welcome!
