After being outdoors for about half a second, neither Brent nor I were too excited about the Challenged Child and Friends (where Ben goes for Speech) 5K today. It was low 50's and very windy. I had high hopes a couple of months ago to actually run it, but I haven't carved out any time yet for myself to exercise. I have just now found a guaranteed shower time! So, we opted out of the 5K and did the 1 mile Fun Run/Walk. We walked with the kids. But anyway, once we got there, it really was a lot of fun. The kids really enjoyed it, even Brayden. Here he is with his "Participant" ribbon. I wish I could have gotten a bigger smile, but he smiles and looks away, every single time I pick up the camera. He already has PCS. I do hope  to one day run a 5K. Doesn't sound like much, but for someone who has only ran 2 miles at once, EVER, it is a big goal. :)

Oh Laurie! I wish we lived closer we could sit together and just think about exercising...maybe we would get fit that way without actually excercising! ;) I was just telling my husband for the ?? time how I would love to run again. I also have not found a way to fit "EVERYTHING" I want to do into my schedule. Let me know if you come up with a good plan. Adorable photo of your little guy! I love his little tie shirt!

What a sweet picture! He looks so happy and just as cute as a bug. Glad you had a good time.

Laurie, he is so cute! I miss running 5K's. Charleston was a great place to do that. If I ran one now, they would probably have to call 911 for me!

I trained for a 5k last semester and then got sick the week before the race :( Since then, I haven't committed enough time. One day! This photo is so cute!

I have the same goal! I told Ian I wanted to be able to run a 5K before I turn 30 (that is only 3 more months) Yikes! I did a 5K back in October but I walked some of it. Good luck with your challenge! Feel free to nag me about mine :O) he he Love this shot of Brayden! What a sweetie!

He's a cutie for sure! I did the 5k thing as a teenager, but do not think I could do it now.

He looks so proud! :)

I am also trying to work on the 5K thing. Have you tried Couch to 5K?

About the organizing book... I honestly have not even picked it up yet to look at it. I really think you could probably get enough info off of her site. I have heard a lot of good things about her and the book.
