My dear friend Sarah ran her first 5k last Saturday.
I just wish I would have been able to be there to run it with her!
I'm so excited that she has caught the running bug!!
Sarah and I have been friends for years.
She is the one that got me my job where I work.
We actually met through a Scrapbooking Yahoo Group way back in the day.
Who knew that posting on Yahoo Group would get me one of my best friends I've ever had??
Sarah sold Creative Memories and I was interested in becoming a consultant, so I signed up under her.
We did that together for a few years and continued scrapbooking and hanging even after I quit being a consultant.
I had been kind of looking for a job outside of the house (I was a stay at home mom for 7 years) and Sarah helped me to get a job where I work now.
We worked together for a couple years.
There is nothing better than going to work with your best friend. It was like going to play every day.
Sadly her family decided to move to Texas and that put an end to that.
I did however drive out with her and the kids.
Whew that was a long drive but it was great getting to spend more time with her.
I went out to visit once and she's been back to visit here too.
Usually we have a margarita at our favorite Mexican restaurant.
We drink margaritas well together.
Last time she came to visit she had a bit of a fall and really messed up her leg.
I was really worried about her!
But then all of a sudden, she decided that she was going to start running.
She started doing the couch to 5k program and finished it!
Just in time for her 5k on Saturday.
She was disappointed with her time but I say she's lapping that old Sarah on the couch!
All you new runners out there, don't ever be disappointed that you didn't do a faster time.
Think of how far you have come!!
You will get faster the more you run and the more you train.
Anyone that is competitive, which I am, and I know most of my friends are too (imagine that) is going to constantly be challenging themselves to go farther and faster.
If we just keep lacing up our shoes and going outside we are WINNING every single time!
Sarah has already signed up for her next 5k.
Have you signed up for a race lately?
I'm about to register for my next one!Pin It
