Girls on the run 5k

My stepdaughters and I just completed our first 5k together! We had a blast. This was for Girls on the Run which is a program which trains young girls to run a 5k plus gives them encouragement and weekly lessons on self esteem, etc. 

With no training, I surprisingly complete this 5k in 33:15 and placed 6th in my age group. Aly placed 3rd in her age group with a time of 27:42 and Macy placed 64th with a time of 42:00. This has sparked my running love again. I can't believe I kept saying I was going to train and never did! Even though I could not move the next day, I felt wonderful. It was such a blessing to do this with the girls and we have already picked 2 more races to run in the coming months!
