WE DID IT :)

some blurry pictures! Me on the way to event, and boys at the starting line :)
Yep, we finished our first 5K this morning! wooohoooooooo!!
And guess what??! My hubby won the race! Yes, the ENTIRE race! he was able to bust through the finish line with a time of 24:23 , pace 7min49sec My time: 35:27 while pushing a 41lb boy and a 31lb boy!!! haha, can you tell I'm asking for sympathy?! Not to mention part of the course was on grass/rocky unpaved street! But NO excuses, I did the best I could do and I'm pretty darn proud of both of us!
We are very proud of ourselves and this is the beginning of MANY more to come...plus, I think a half marathon might be in our future :)


Ya know a year ago, my hubby was just beginning his weight loss journey and today, with a 90+lb weight loss and finding a true love for running, he WON the 5K!! I am SO proud of him and all that he's accomplished. I have a healthier husband and our boys have a healthier Daddy...and that makes me SO proud! You should have seen the boys when they heard their Daddy won the race?! SO PROUD :)
