Race Day

OK...last Saturday Joel, Ava and I ran a 5K. I know that seems like nothing, but it is the first real exercise that I have done since I had Ava. 3.1 miles use to be nothing, but man am I out of shape. I probably should have trained for the race, because it was more difficult than I expected. It was a lot of hills. Had it been flat, I think it would have been no problem. Our time was horrible due to us (me) having to walk up the steep hills, but it was fun to get out as a family and do something active. We will need to practice running with Ava more, because she did not like be constricted to the stroller.



Made me realize I need to exercise more. All-in-all, it was a great day - Hanging out with my two favorite people.
