I manage a country homestead and the lives of my 4 babies ages 10,8,5 and 3. I LOVE TO RUN and NEED to keep healthy and fit for my SANITY!! Seriously....All problems are solved when I am running.

Making MY health a priority allows me to be the mother and wife that I need to be for them.

I Froze three times and got this T-Shirt

24:44 Minute 5km race today in the 3rd and final Freeze UR Buns run (Yes the seconds count). This is my best 5km time this year. I had a fabulous run. Nothing hurt on my body, the sun was out and I stayed focused long enough to push myself under the 24minute mark.

Sometimes it is hard being this competitive because although I ran a GREAT run, the competitor in me screams BRING IT ON!

This is an important moment because I have 2 options now. I start to train for LONGER distances or the same distance but FASTER. I am kind of a speed junky and a little pressed for time during the week so I'm thinking a faster 5km would be more realistic. However, now that I'm finished having babies and my knee is healed the elusive marathon goal is a possibility.

I won't think about it today. I think I'm just high on the endorphins and thinking crazy thoughts.

Instead I'll focus on continuing to get out the door twice a week and not injuring myself.

Yes...that seems a little more attainable. However bring on life because these endorphins have not worn off!! Yip Yip Hurrah! Whoop Whoop !!!!!!!!
