Run to Breathe 5k

Welp... I did it! I completed my 2nd 5k in 32:52....8 seconds faster than my first one!! It was soo hot compared to my first 5k & there were a few hills this time...I know...excuses...but it was a little bit different. 

The whole reason I did it was for my friend Jennifer & in memory of her daughter Haley. Haley passed away 2 years ago from Cystic Fibrosis & Jennifer is still fighting for a cure for CF!!! I admire her so much for her drive & determination to continue to fight!!! 
There was a huge turnout for the race...close to 300!!
Here are a few of my running partners!! Thanks so much to all of you!
My kids got up early to come cheer me on since Matt was out of town...they got a little reward of doughnuts afterwards!! :)
Hannah & I after the race...exhausted!!
It was a great feeling crossing that line again. I can see now why people are addicted to running. 
I pray they find a cure for CF soon! Too many kids are dying from it!!! 


  1. I so want to start running again. Did it for awhile then stopped, not to train for a race but stay in shape. I need to make that one of my a 5K! Thanks for your own motivates me. :)

  2. How exciting that you finished quicker!! I started the Couch to 5K program last week, hopefully I will be running benefit 5K's soon!!

    So glad you are back!! Missed you!!

    Love and blessings to you!!

  3. You did awesome!! Notice I was just standing at the finish line taking pics :) But, I do have an excuse for not running since I have a bad leg. It doesn't really like being pounded into the pavement. Great job Steph!! I saw Brooke today at Classroom Corner. She is such a doll!!
