Greg and I ran our first 5k together this morning. Greg ran a few several years back, but this was my first one. I'm thrilled to have done this and pretty happy with our time, too. 33 minutes, not too bad for the first time...
Some friends ran it with us, and since it was a "Spooktacular" run, the girls got dressed up for it. Some kind of 70/80 workout gear...
Greg und ich sind heute frueh unseren ersten 5 Kilometer Lauf miteinander gerannt. Fuer Greg war es nicht der erste (er hat vor Jahren ein paar mitgemacht) aber fuer mich war es das erste Mal, dass ich einen 5 km Lauf komplett gerannt bin. Ich bin so froh, dass wir es gemacht haben und mit unserer Zeit (33 Minuten) bin ich auch zufrieden.
Ein paar Freunde haben es mit uns gemacht und wir "Maedels" haben uns "verkleidet" da es ein "Spooktacular" Lauf war. 


  1. I've missed a weeks worth of blogs, but wow congrats on the run, that's awesome!
