I did it! I finished my race today in 55:57:4, 53rd out of 376 runners--I can't believe it! Thanks, everyone for your support, especially my hubby and my sister, who was the first to hug me as I reached the end.
It was definitely an amazing feeling to cross the finish line. Now that I've proven to myself that I can run (in front of other people), there may or may not be more races in my future. We'll see :)

Well, I'm a day late and a dollar short, but Happy Birthday to my wonderful husband Dustin! Not that he minds either the day or the dollar due to our cheap-skate nature and the fact that he doesn't really love birthdays as much as I do. :)
Anyway, to celebrate my baby's last year in his 20's, there was some of this...
some of these...
(homemade quadruple dark chocolate cupcakes, dubbed the Chocolate Overload by D. Fancy, no?)
dinner at our favorite Mexi place.and then we went home and went to sleep like the two old farts we are. We just can't keep up with the young whippersnappers these days. 29 is the new 59. Ha Ha. Just kidding Mom!
