This past Saturday I participated in my first 5K run/walk. It was the 1st Downtown Derby hosted by the Junior League of B/CS. It was so much fun! My Aunt Carolyn and sister Melanie came to walk with me and that made it go by so fast because we talked the whole way. Melanie and I jogged the last block and went across the finish line a little under 54 minutes! I thought it would take us over an hour just walking, so glad it didn't. They had prizes to giveaway at the end (which none of us won) and bagels and fruit for refreshment. It was a lot of fun and I plan on doing another one soon!
Here is the starting line. We are kind of in the middle. You can barely see me over on the right side, just behind a blonde chick wearing a red shirt. You can only see half my face.
Here we are starting out. Josh was yelling at me, "Mom, you're losing!" He is so competitive!
I am a stay at home Mom raising 3 boys with my husband of 12 years. My oldest son is 6, the middle is 6 and the baby is 3. They keep me busy and I love it! We moved from Texas to Virginia in July of 2010, where my hubby has taken a job as an Assistant Professor at Virginia Tech. I love reading, scrapbooking, crafting, cake decorating, baking, playing with my kids, listening to music and learning about my Lord and Savior. I welcome any comments as long, as they are respectful.
I read a total of 76 books in 2010 and my goal for 2011 will be 85.
11/25/11UPDATE--I didn't put into consideration that last year I added books of the bible to my list and this year I am not...I didn't keep last year's list but I am pretty sure that at least half of the 76 were just books as opposed to the Bible. So I think a new goal of mine will be to have read 50 books. I only have a month left...
