Long story short: A friend from my birth month group set up a 5k event to raise awareness of pediatric strokes. Her son, Jace, had a stroke in utero before he was even born! The event was held in her home state of Kansas so obviously I couldn't be there to support them in person. Luckily she allowed people to sign up as virtual participants and I was able to make a donation, get a race shirt, and run the race at home on the same day!
With the help of my adorable running buddy and my coach (aka the hubster), I ran my first ever 5k. That's 3.1 miles, folks! In 2011 I was proud to run ONE MILE. Now I did 3.1! Granted I did some intervals in there and took some short walking breaks but I never stopped and I finished!
