Today I participated in my first 5K, WOO HOO!
I had been tossing around the idea of joining in on racing for a cause and today was the perfect introduction.
I awoke with vigor and a lift in my step. I got ready while the house still slept. The race was held at UCI and benefited CHOC Hospital's oncology department.
I was thrilled to be supporting a cause along with my best friend, Rhonda. What a true blessing it was to have her brother, Mark encourage us to get moving and take on new challenges. I am so grateful.
Additionally, I wish to give a shout out to Mrs. El-Hinn, (Rhonda's mom) who continues to lead by example.
|Awaiting the GO!|
|Let's Do This!|
I so loved hearing the announcer cheering me on my last few strides. I even blew him a kiss!
|Megan, Mark, and Rhonda|
|We did it!|
Megan, Rhonda, and I
|Mrs. El- Hinn and CHOC Bear|
While this was my first race, I know it won't be my last!
