I ran a 5k!!!

I finally got to go visit Laura and her little familia, as well as my Grandma this weekend. It was so nice to see them. It had been way too long since I last saw them. I drove up the the Kevin Cruess family because we all wanted to participate in the Walk/Run for LIFE in Roseville. I ran my first 5k since Cross Country, and I was pretty proud of myself. I was able to run the whole thing, and my time wasn't awful. I hope to do more 5k's in the future though, and I hope to get much better times!

I had a great weekend, even though it FLEW by. Spending time with family is always worth it. Playing and dancing with my little nieces is always a blast, and driving for hours in a car with a sick Benji is always fun. He was actually very good for a sick little boy. He did a lot of sleeping. (I hope he is feeling better now.) Car trips are always awesome when you have a little kids in the back singing/trying to dance to Party Rock Anthem and Gangnam Style. While at Laura's house, it was so fun to see her little ones growing up. (It was also sad to see how much I've missed.) They were dancing, singing, talking, riding bikes, and just being basically AWESOME. I would expect nothing less though, of course.

I am so glad that I was able to spend the weekend with great people, eating delicious food (thanks Chris for the BBQ), and having a fun time. I am so blessed to have such a wonderful family! <3

    1. I didn't win a medal or a trophy. This 5k was just a fundraiser for the Sacramento Life Center. It was a lot of fun though. :) When are you going to put another video up on your blog?
