Running For Fun!!!

Our wonderful Supporters!!!
Today I ran the Spectrum 10K with one of my dear friends, MinDee. This was her first race that she has ever ran. SHE DID AWESOME!!! She never once stopped through the whole race, and I never left her side. Her friend Stephanie ran with us. Stephanie has ran some races, (St. George Marathon) so this was purely just fun for her. The race started in the middle of Snow Canyon State Park and ended at the church in Ivins, just down the street from my parents house. We ended a little over an hour, with tears of joy, and pure accomplishment. I am so proud of MinDee!

Look out runners, MinDee just caught the running bug, and it looks like we are going to run the Snow Canyon Half Marathon that happens the first week of November. I want to thank my cheerleaders - Jessie, Mom, and Dad. Thanks for showing up an hour before we crossed the finish line...a little over anxious??? (Also, I didn't even use my iPod - Shellie, you are rubbing off on me - it was awesome!)

Lib-dawg! I finally looked at my first blog! The pics are great! I have the one with the 3 of us as my screen saver (motivator for the half marathon!) But the other pics, I look like I run like a moron. I may need to take running lessons. Had a blast! Sooo sore still!!! You're nice to stay along side me the whole way!

You guys are amazing, if not a little crazy. Actually, I had never, ever, in my whole life, even when I was thin and young, considered running in a race, but you, Libby, and my friend Melissa, who lost 100 pounds this year and also just ran a something-K (forgive me) are so inspiring. I just might think about it. ;)

You and MinDee did so good! I don't recommend having mom as a cheerleader anymore, or at least not with me she would ask every two minutes "Do you see them yet" It got really annoying really fast, but you know I'll always be there to cheer for you.
