First 5K!!

So after years of wanted to do it, I signed up for the Komen Race for the Cure and Ran/walked it this past Saturday.

It was very emotional for me. seeing so many people supporting people in their lives, themselves, and all of us participating in this event.

I thought of the people in my life who have fought this disease, my mother, Aunt Cheryl, Aunt Anita, Aunt Annie, my co-worker Linda, a family friend of 24 years+ Glenda. And my beloved Aunt Lisa who passed away fighting this disease.

Officially my time was 60 minutes and 56 seconds. However, the ever handsome Jacksonville Sheriff's Officers had stopped us so the 2K could start, we were almost done! I say my time was 56 minutes, according to my math skillz.

I look forward to running this next year, I did learn that I need to practice more incline/decline running.
