The Human Race 2011

This weekend I had the joy of finishing "The Human Race," a local event hosted by the Haywood/Jackson Volunteer Center. My goal for 2011 is to finish three 5K races by July, so this was the second one.  
My family was there to support me which made a whole world of difference. The more I participate in races, the more fun I have. I am also learning that although the mileage is the same, every course is different. That feeling I get when I cross the finish line never changes tough. Today I am thankful to God for allowing me to train and finish my second 5K of 2011. When I thought about where I came from, how I never saw myself as a runner, I was overjoyed. Running had three different phases in my life:
1. Impossible 
2. Dream
3. Reality 
This is what Phase 3 looks like:


This is my favorite photo of the day. Being healthy for my Family is the reason why I keep pressing on:
The sun was bothering someone :)

Beat my previous record by 1 minute!
