I did it!

I finished in 37:42 with an average pace of 11:56 min/mi. Barely met my goal. It was tough.

Jim came to cheer me on. Love him!

Then afterwards I got a call from my friend. I made her a proposition yesterday and she had decided to take me up on it. She does wonders with flowers and landscaping. She is trying to make her granddaughter a quilt but just can't seem to finish it. I told her if she would do my yard I'd finish her quilt.

So......after the 5k that about did me in, we want to lowes and got flowers, soil, pots, fertilizer, and pine straw and worked for about 3-4 hours in my front yard. She trimmed all the plants, pulled dead stuff out, planted lots and lots of pansies. Gave me direction on painting old pots black, spreading the pine straw, and general info on how to make things look better.

We even got a new spring flag and hanging ferns. It looks 100% better than it did. Wish I had some before shots.

Congrats! I went running for the first time in a long time on Saturday in the lovely weather we've been having. I really over did it and went 3 miles and I'm still hurting today!

The big question is when is your next 5k? Once you start you can't stop!

We've signed up for the Nashville Color Run for March 30th. The whole family (minus the baby) will be doing it. (I have a 6yr old and a 9yr old)
