Came in First


I ran a 5k yesterday morning with my daughter, Maria and 8 year old grandson, Timothy.  The race was held at Route 66 in Eureka.  Annie’s Hope sponsored the race.  Annie’s Hope  is a community based nonprofit organization whose mission is to provide comprehensive support services for children, teens and their families who are grieving the death of someone significant.  

Becky Burns is the director and a client of ours.  I wanted to support her organization.  It was such a fun morning.  The weather was beautiful and the race was all on flat ground.  It was a lot of fun and it felt so good to be out running again.  It was especially fun running with my grandson and daughter.  This was Timothy’s first 5k.  And hopefully, I will have another running partner.

We hung around to see who the winners were and I will be dog gone.  I came in first in my age group.  Now to be honest.  I did not see too many women my age at the race.  But that doesn’t matter.  I sure did win.  And I am very happy about it.  I came home and hung that medal up along side my running number as a reminder as to how far I have come.
