What a difference a week makes…

Last Sunday morning I was driving myself home from Urgent Care with severe case of strep throat; this morning I ran a 5k!
My sister Kris and I (along with about 5,000 other people) ran in the Shamrock Run. It was my first 5k and I had so much fun! Being sick all week did take it’s toll on me, I am still not quite back to 100%, but was able to finish the run just a few minutes over my original goal time. I think I am now hooked on running and am looking forward to my next 5k.

Oh yeah……Kris also gave me a haircut today. This morning I had hair down past my shoulders!
