May has arrived!

 For many, that is race season.

 I just actually had my 1st race for the year. I was hoping it would have been at least a 1/2 marathon but without proper training I completed a 10k.

It was really fun because it was on the campus of my college-Oklahoma State University.

 I got to run through campus and just think about all the good times I had there. Seeing how much has changed.

I am in the yellow with my friends Bill & Kristi with their daughter

Here is my race medal for Remember the Ten Race

I wanted to finish in 60 minutes. I knew that would be tough goal considering I have not really been running enough. I finished in 70 minutes. I was very PROUD of myself for that!

*It honors the 10 members of the basketball team that we lost January 27, 2001 in a plane crash.

I'm glad I did it and I look forward to doing it again next year now that I am back in Oklahoma.

I am not going to lie I have not been running as much I would like to be. It was rough just jumping into a 10k race but I knew I could do it. I think that has been my mentality ever since I did the 26.2.

I will begin training for my next marathon come June 1st.

I am really enjoying life here in the windy city...I know it isn't technically called that but seriously should be!

This last weekend my Aunt Nancy came up and we went to the Arts Festival here. It should be called the "eats" festival because man did we PIG out. The food was DEEEE licious.

here we are in the grassy lil one was mesmerized by the statue behind us

But here we are later playing on the ground in our living room.

I love her and how silly she can be.

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend! I look forward to doing more races now that I finally got one under my belt for the year!
