Run for Fun? What kind of fun is that?

So a pregnancy and a lot of months ago I was running everyday at least 3-12 miles. I completed three half-marathons that year. Since I had Hannah I just have not been getting in the zone to run again. A mile on the treadmill feels like ten. I needed some motivation and signed myself up for the Ogden 5K race on May 17th. It is going to be very low key for me..I just wanted some motivation to get started. I am going to run while pushing Hannah in the running believe me when I say LOW KEY. I also signed Carson up to run the Kids K. We have been practicing at least 2-3 times a week. He does great for the first 1/2 mile, but to have him finish out the last two laps is like pulling teeth (notice the thumbs down picture)...I am hoping this will improve. If you want to join in the fun let me know. If you want to see me cross the finish line you will have to show up at 0715, if you want to watch Carson cross the finish line show up at 1230. Wish us luck!!

I am trying to loose the weight from three kids in three years. I am getting back into the running thing too. I am looking for a running partner. So if you know of any one in Tremonton who runs let me know! Good luck in the 5k race. I'm doing the Cache Valley Triathlon so we'll see how that goes.
