5k number 3

I have to say this whole 'athletic' thing is fun :)

A nice picture before the race with my runner friend and neighbor.
I look like I'm on drugs and haven't even had my 5 hour energy yet. I was just really excited!

I'm still smiling since it's just started

Not as smiley but still having fun!

I can't believe how much progress I've made since my last 5k only 8 weeks ago.
10 minutes faster!!

While I was out there I could literally feel the core work I've been doing. I could feel the strength in my abs and my hips as picked up my legs and I'm able to take much bigger strides (well as big as my 2 foot long legs allow!)

A special shout out to Karen for helping me get so strong, caring about my core, and helping me feel good wearing that tight t-shirt with those really short sleeves ;)

Oh and I can't forget to thank our supportive spouses who enjoyed coffee and pastries while taking pictures!


  1. I am so proud of you. You are an inspiration to me. I have begun exercising regularly and enjoy the feeling of accomplishment and the improved health that go along with it. By posting these pictures many of us are better able to see ourselves following your example. Well done.

  2. That was an awesome run!! Way to go kiddo :)

  3. Awesome job! I'm training for a 5k in October. If I can finish the couch to 5k I may do one sooner, but I'm not a fan of hot weather so I might need to wait for the fall anyhow!! What an inspiration! Love the pictures!

  4. That is awesome. I starting losing weight about the same time as you, and have lost about the same. I think it is amazing that you did a 5k. I have not even thought about it. You are very inspiring.

  5. I am so thrilled and proud of you!!!! You are amazing!!!!

    I did a 5K today(tonight), too!!!

    Still so excited for you!!!

    Congrats, Tina!
