30 by 30 {run the bcs 5k}

15 Sep

 

Today was the day. Today was the 5k that I have been training so hard for. In May I could barely run 3 minutes. Today I ran the entire 5k without stopping in a little under 30 minutes! I was so proud of myself.
We put together a team to run in honor of my grandmother, DeDe, who passed away in February from breast cancer. So we made Team DeDe. There were 8 fabulous people running for the team.

The whole team finished in 40 minutes or under! I am so proud of everyone because everyone has been working so hard. We killed it!

We were all sweaty when we were done but so excited for each other in accomplishing everything we did.

There is a big pink fire truck that comes to certain events. You can sign the truck in remembrance of people or in celebration or for whatever reason you want. DeDe signed the truck last year, right on the gas cap door, and we all signed around it.

I’m so glad everyone was able to make it to run with the team. It meant a lot to me and I know it meant a lot to my mom to have us all there.

It was supposed to rain this morning and there was a big line of rain coming right towards us. Right before the race started, the line broke right in the middle, right where we were. I know it was DeDe giving us some good weather for the race. It ended up being a beautiful day.

I love all of these people and I’m so glad that we were all able to run the race for such a good cause. It is an amazing feeling to accomplish so much and do it with my favorite people.
I miss DeDe every day and I am proud to do something like this in her honor. I know she is proud of me.
