Our First Family 5k

If you follow me on my personal Facebook you will see the family shots of our first 5k. We did the Flint Color Vibe over the weekend and it was a LOT of fun. As you can see from my photo I look a little worse for wear. I should have smiled and I should NOT have stood in front of the potties. LOL

But – we finished. And we finished as a family. It was such a wonderful feeling. I was a little worried that lil m was not going to make it. I am glad the fun colored powders and music kept her entertained to keep walking (there was no way we were going to run).

I had wanted to run. I had planned to run. But summer got so rough that I blew my C25k program right out the window months ago. We were not the only people walking. Matter of fact, I would guess more people walked than ran. It was cool. People of all shapes and sizes.

Proceeds from the fun run went to the area United Way.

I had a blast and I can’t wait to do it again next year.

  1. Yeah, good for you. I've been thinking I should definitely get out and excercise more. Run, walk, hit the gym… something. That's really great you kept up with it. Congrats. <3

  2. Congrats. I think they should encourage more people to walk. It is a great way to engage people in getting healthy. There are lots of people who for health reasons shouldn't run, but lots of people can walk and each time they do see how much better they are getting at it.
