5K with Kiddos, Complete!!
It couldn't have been a more perfect morning. The sun was shining and the temp was perfect. The lake that we ran around was absolutely beautiful!! The experience of being with all of the other people was phenomenal. My 17 & 9 year old daughters went ahead and finished before me and my 10 year old son. Still waiting on our times to be posted. There was a little monkey wrench thrown in (and excuse me if this is TMI for anyone, but we're all human here, right?!)... this "lucky" woman was visited by her "Aunt Flow" literally WHEN the race began. Luckily, I knew "she" was coming so I was mostly prepared. However, I was not prepared for the pounding headache, major cramps, sciatic pain, nausea and dizziness which did not contribute to the desire to be present and thoroughly enjoy the experience! Ugh :(.. At any rate, I have ZERO regrets! :) I am extremely proud and happy to have experienced this with my kids. I am extremely proud of their commitment and dedication. And there is no doubt that we will be doing this again in the near future! Thank you all for following and supporting our journey! <3 Now, I'm exhausted and ready for a nap! ;)
