Happy Father's Day

It's about love. That's my dad in a nutshell. He was my best friend as a teenager up till I met my husband. He was always very understanding in world that isn't so much. He taught me to think for myself and to question. He's always stood up for me when things got tough. He was the parent I went to when I needed comfort or someone to talk to. And now no matter where my siblings and I are he's always there just loving us for who we are and always there to lend a hand even when it's probably better if doesn't!

Thanks Dad for your love for that's truly what it's all about! Love you!

My First 5K!

I ran my first 5K this morning! I've been training the last eight weeks for this...but about three days ago I caught a bit of a bug...coughing, stuffy nose, sore throat, the works. So I wasn't in top form this morning, but nevertheless I persevered and came in at 31:05.7 minutes!!! It was mostly downhill which really helped with my time since I haven't been able to do that well on my treadmill at no incline. I ran 3.1 miles without stopping once and while sick to boot! Very exciting and I have no shame in patting myself on the back! I'm hoping to run another one maybe this summer, but definitely next year without being sick. I may even try a 10K! I don't think I'll go beyond that, though. I don't really enjoy running and I think anything longer than 6.2 miles would just be beyond my sensibilities! So yeah me!
