Jiggle Butt Update

Okay, I completed my first ever 5K today. It was so much fun because all 8 of our playgroup mommies jiggled it together!
Here we are before the race in order by faces Elaine, Tracy, Jenn, me, Claudia, Jennifer, Michelle, and Carrie.

My goal was to complete it in under 40 minutes and my time was 35:10! I let myself walk to long toward the end and I had some trouble with my breathing due to allergies but all in all I am pleased with myself. Since I never run I wasn't really as prepared as I should have been.... Not to worry, I will be more ready for next time! Yes, next time. We are now all planning to do the Cowtown 5K together on Feb 28th.

Natalie, that is a fantastic time! Way to go girl! I have an excellent running program - the one Elaine has - if you are interested.

Go you!

Michelle said...

Oh congratulations! That's a wonderful accomplishment and something that I hope to do this year (hey, day 2 of week 4 AGAIN today... I've gotten so close to running the 5K and then been distracted by life). That's wonderful that you were able to complete the 5K in under your hoped for time -- and with friends, too! Good luck and keep it up!
