Racheal and I were in our first 5k this past in OCtober. It was the Monster Mash 5k. We thought we were not going to get to do it because it rained all afternoon, but about 45 minutes before it started it quit raining and the sun came out. We walked & ran some. When we were almost back to the Jr High Racheal said "Mom we almost made it & we did fall over!" We were the last ones to finish and Racheal received a trophy for being the last person to cross the finish line. We finished in 48 minutes which I thought was really good. All our friends were cheering for Racheal as she crossed the finish line. One friend said she had her arms up in the air as she crossed the finish line. I was so proud of her. She gets extra points in the Miller Club in PE for doing it. We were both very sore, but glad we did it. She wants to do another one in the spring, but I told her we need to train for that one!
Sorry this is late & the pictures I have are on my cell phone & haven't had time to figure out how to get them on here!
