Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure

workout: 3 mile run...Susan G Komen Race for the Cure

The race started at 8:20 am. We were ready at about 6:30 am. I made a Green Monster smoothie with strawberries. It was my first time trying it with strawberries and I must say that it was not as great as I thought it was going to be. We put pink ribbons in our hair. Maybe next year we will try something more EXTREME with our outfits.

As you can see there was a lot of people there. It was great to see so many people come out and support such a good cause. Everyone seemed to be enjoying themselves and getting a lot of free goodies.

We still had about 20 minutes here. We were just having fun and starting to get in the mood for our run.

Showing our numbers. we signed up at the same time..that's why our numbers are right after another.

Craig always there to support me. He is so patient and an amazing boyfriend. I say this a lot but I will keep saying it.......I am VERY lucky.

We had stretched already. I was taking a little water break and I also had a piece of scone from Wild Flower Co. They were passing them around. You can see all the free stuff we got in our bags. =)

Just passed the starting line. We were feeling pumped. I was listening to the new Brit song "3" at this point. I love it!!!

After the race. I made Vero and Craig pose together. They act like they don't love each other but I know they do. I love these guys. Oh and we have matching shirts on. Yeah we rock. LOL. They say Modern Family. We got them at the Disney Half Marathon Expo. We really like that show too.

This is our parentals. They showed up a little late but better late than never. =) They took us out to eat afterwards. Craig and I got a little bit sick from it too. LOL. We are just not used to that type of food anymore. It was yum though. I'm glad my family was able to make it for my sister's first run. I'm excited for the P.F. Changs RNR. I know my sister is going to enjoy it. Woooohooo.

It felt great to be out there running again. Every time I do a run I get reminded about how much I love it and I'm glad I tried it. I was so scared on my first run almost a year ago. I feel like I've come a long way since then. I hope I just keep getting better and keep enjoying it as much as I do now.
After the race we came home and took a well needed nap. We then went to Yogurtland and got some yummy froyo. Planned for the rest of the evening.......dinner and cuddling.
Hope you are all enjoying your weekend. Time to go back to work tomorrow. UGH. haha jk. I actually enjoy my job once in awhile. Actually, I enjoy the people I work with.
Bye kiddos,
