The big day is over!

Yesterday was Father's Day, but it was also my first 5K! 



Losing 60 pounds and running my first 5K was a big deal for me.  I am very happy to report that both me and my friend ran the entire thing without a walk break.  We were not the fasted, nor were we the slowest.  We may have been the proudest- so proud in fact, we're looking for another race to do!  45.16 is not that bad for a first timer right :) 


* I wanna say thank you to husband and kiddo who cheered for us enroute and at the finish line, and of course to my running partner M, who not only ran with me but kept my speed in check.
