Maggie Lee 5k

Saturday morning we ran. It was a race for Epilepsy. There are a few of us from church that get together and run on Saturday's. We all raced this past Saturday. We all did well, and placed!!! It helps when you run a small race!!!

My goal for this race was to run an 8 minute mile and finish in 24 minutes. I almost did it and am a little disappointed that I didn't push just a little harder. I ran it in 24:26. I shaved over 2 minutes off my last 5k time. I am pleased with that. I wish I hadn't have walked over the finish line! I didn't know where it was! I like to think my time was more like 24:23! We all had a great time racing together. I think we'll do it again! ****edited to add**** I forget that 5k is a little more than 3 miles. I ran 7:52/mile pace. That was better than my goal, so, now I'm happy. I was right on track!

We are still having nice weather here. There is a cold front coming through soon though so we are spending all the time we can out in the sun. This morning we went to a beach on Grand Island. It was quiet and fun. It's always extra work when we go to the beach. We all have to take baths when we get home. It makes me cringe to think of putting my kids down for naps with sandy toes and bums! Icky!

I need to set up doctor appointments this week. I don't like going to the doctor. I find it annoying, although I am grateful to have caretakers at my fingertips. I don't want to sound ungrateful, but I really don't like going!

Congratulations to our friends the Ormsby's! We are so excited for your new little arrival!

Loves to you Lenni! It was great talking to you on the phone this weekend. Thanks for the 411 on the camera!
