Last week, I participated in the Short Run Long Day 5k for the 6th year in a row. I love this race for a few reasons. It's in the town I live in and is only a hop-skip-jump away! I can find parking right near the start. My run group FNRC is a HUGE presence at this run. Which basically means...lots of my friends are there! Every where I looked from the minute I got out of the car, I saw gold FNRC. Even the volunteers! It was so fun!

Actually long story short, we ran it, we finished, he fussed a little in the third mile but nothing a little "Elvis" couldn't handle. My friends seemed to all love him and I enjoy bringing him out every once in a while so everyone can see him. He really is a cutie!

All in all, it was a successful run. I'm much slower than I was prior to having the baby but I'm actually working my way back up a bit and noticing some progress.
