Run marirob, run!

This past weekend Rob and I, along with my sister Mina, participated in a 5k/10k run. If you remember this entry, we've been trying to run since January. We took the month of February off (something about moving?) but Mina suggested signing up for a run to motivate us.

Mina and me right before the race.


Mina and Rob ran the 10k, I ran the 5k so I was able to take photos of them at the startline.


And here we are after the race with our medals!


My goal was just to run the entire 5k, which I did. Yay! Rob's goal was the same, and he ran the whole way too! Yippee! Rob's planning to run a half-marathon in October, so he'll be training quite a bit. Me? I'm happy with my 5k!

On a crafty note, I managed to buy some knit fabric to start some serging - hopefully, it'll be fun!

Way to go! A long, long time ago, I tried to train for a 5K. I don't think I've run since. Too hard on the knees. But look how happy the three of you are to have finished!
