I finished the ALS 5K!!!

Before the Race

The Finish Line

After the Race


So Misty and Rhonda talked me into doing a 5k walk/run for research for ALS. I was quite nervous. I am EXTREMELY out of shape. We were supposed to be there at 8:00, which the race started at 8:30am. So we left at like 6:45am. Good thing because we got lost. We drove around and drove around and finally found it like 15 minutes before it started. Sara decided at the last minute to go online and register and come with us, but she is a retard and forgot her inhaler. The first part of it was all down hill and the last was all up hill. Once we started we decided to run the downhill part. After running a little bit, Sara started to have troubles breathing. So i kept walking faster and got a head of them all little bit. Then i decided that i was just going to run what i could, so i was kind of rude and ran most of it. My goal was 40 minutes...DONT LAUGH!!! I had know idea if that was good or bad, but i figured it was good for me because i have never done one of these before. I finished 40:18....i almost did my goal. Misty and Sara ended up quitting a little bit before half way, and rhonda finished. I am sure Nancy was looking down laughing her guts out but we did it for you mom!! But after the race, we decided to a little shopping. Cozy met us down there. We were about half way through the day and we went to Target. I learned a very valuable and expensive lesson. Mylee fell out of the shopping cart and landed on her head. I ran and picked her up and checked her pupils. She then started puking...so i told Cozy that we needed to go the emergency room because that was one of the first signs of a concussion. We get there and they checked her over...they decided not to do a cat scan on her. she just had a big bump on her head. So without insurance, that is going to be quite the bill.

good for you for running the race. You all should come run the Race for the cure on May 9th in SLC. It is a great race to run in. Don't feel bad about mylee falling out of the cart. Hayden was messing around one day and Tad was little sitting in the front and he tipped the cart over on him and hit his head on the cement floor. His head swelled up like a ping pong ball and I thought I was going to have to take him to the DR. Thank goodness it all worked out and I'm glad my kids have a hard head like there fathers for something.
