Komen 5K Weekend Wrap-up
This past weekend was fantabulous! I participated in the Komen 5K in Plano on Saturday morning. If you've never participated in a Susan G Komen race, I highly recommend you do so. Being around tens of thousands of excited, positive people with a common purpose is a wonderful experience. In past races, I've completed the 5K through a combination of running and walking. This time around, I ran the entire way with my best friend Jenn by my side! She kept me motivated and I'm sure I wouldn't have done it without her. Her mom is a survivor (Yes!) and we ran in celebration of her.
A lot more of my family and friends participated in this race as well. Our group consisted of my mom Peggy, my dad Jack, my sister Jo, her husband Trey, their daughter Livy, and our friends Emily, Sarah, David, Ryan, Rachel, Audrey, and Becca. What a great group!
I can't wait for the next race! It'll be in Dallas in October. I'll be there, and I'd love for you to join me!
After the race, we grabbed some lunch at Paradise Bakery and headed over to Jo's house for some relaxation by the pool. The kiddos loved the water and provided us with some great entertainment!
