Woo-Hoo! I got myself up this am and down to the Susan G. Koman Race for the Cure. Here is a photo I made my hubby take of me before I left:
I was about over an hour and a half early though - haha! It wasn't a problem with this event though because there was SO much going on. Lots of festivities, vendor booths, hoopla, etc. Talk about INSPIRATION!! Seeing so many survivors and their support groups just brought tears to my eyes. It made me feel so good that I have started on this quest, because I truly do not want to take my good health for granted. I highly recommend attending this event if it comes to your area!

The 5k is about 3.1 miles. My total time was 36:46, which was a lot better than I thought!! I would guess that I ran about 2 miles of it and powerwalked about 1 mile. I broke it up so I'm not sure of the exact amounts, but I was going at a faster average pace than I thought I would so I felt great when I finished!!

1st benchmark successfully completed!!


  1. Great job! Congrats! :) I did the Avon Walk for Breast Cancer the past two years and it was really amazing and inspirational.

    I'm down 7.2 pounds so far, woo hoo! :) I have 8 more pounds to "I'll be happy at this weight" and 13 more to my "I'll be thrilled and have more wiggle-room" weight. :)

  2. Cameron - You Go Girl!! Thanks for checking in!

  3. Congratulations, Jenny! Wonderful job and fantastic time! XO Erin

  4. Good for you Jenn, that's awesome, congrats! I'm starting the NC Roadrunner Club Womens Program in July, I've been wanting to start it for about 5 years now but been either preggo or breastfeeding! Anyway, they teach you the proper way to run, shoes, etc. The 5K race we train for is in September. Are we sisters or something--WW, 5k's, QK addicts! I still need to start up the exercise, I kept with the WW plan last week and I'm down 5.4lbs, only 16 more to go to get to my lifetime weight, and 21 to get to my personal goal weight!
    Keep up the good work Jenn, you're doing awesome!

  5. Yes, long lost sisters!
    Tammy that is super awesome!! The Roadrunners Club sounds great - I wish we had something like that here.
