Love Your Body 5K with the sisters!


Katie, me, Suzanne, and Darci

Yesterday, Suzanne, Darci, Katie and I did a 5K at Sugarhouse Park. I have wanted to do 5K's and 10K's, half, and maybe even someday a whole marathon for a long time, but...never have. Well, obviously I am not in the best shape of my life, or even close to it, so it was the Perfect time right?! Well...I walked it, but I did it. It is a little jump start to some of the things I want to do in my life, and we had a great time! Suzanne, and Darci(my two younger sisters) ran and did a great job. Katie(my SIL who is a sister to me) was kind enough to walk with me. She kept me marching up those killer hills and helped me reach both of the goals I set for myself. I am so glad that Sue invited me to do this 5K with her, and I am glad that I got to do it with some of my sisters! This is just the beginning for me!

How inspiring, Shanna! My sister, Julie, did a 5K with her hubby last weekend in Vernal or Manila, UT. And he has them signed up to do a 10K in Layton next month!
Long ago I used to do them with my boys, or a friend. I'd love to get back into it too. It's exhilarating! I'm proud of you. Keep on keepin' on!

SHanna, your inspiring, maybe I will move forward with the whole 5k thing. I need a buddy though. And to do it in a city that no one knows me?

anyway, I think you look great!

Shanna! You are awesome! I have never done a 5k. I guess I should get my lazy butt off this chair and get running! Good luck!

That is awesome! It's always fun to do something when you aren't sure you can/want to...where have you been?
