Crazy Run

If you would have asked me a year ago if I'd run a 5K I would have laughed at you. Hard. And then I'd have said a firm NO.

But I have this friend...

She's so inspiring! And encouraging... just enough to push you to try but not enough to push you away. It's a good thing. :)

And when you're around her you can't help but think that running might just be fun. I'm not sure I think it's fun, but I've learned to enjoy it enough that I ran a second 5K on Sunday night.

With my inspiring friend Harmony beside me. She's the greatest. Wish I'd had my other running partner Amy with me that night too! (Insert her blog address here... once we finally convince her that she needs one!) She doesn't really love running either, but we like that running is good for us so we've kept it up for months now...(months!!!) but Sunday she was recovering from the great Barf-O-Rama at her household... yuk. :)

Do you want to be inspired to do something good for yourself? And to look at life through the eyes of a loving mom, wife and true follower of Christ? And win cool "bloggy prizes" for runners? Then you've got to visit Harmony's blog. You'll be blessed if you do!

Come to think of it, I never got around to posting photos from my first 5K in August for Children's Hospital that I blogged about HERE... so here's some photos from the first big run! I got to run with my sister that day and it was such a joy to be with family for a great cause. I'd do it again in a heartbeat! (Get it? Mya and the Heartbeats...)

i think i can.
i'm still waiting for the 'fun' part of this whole running gig. how long were you into training before feeling like you could actually accomplish it. i need some motivation!
