I finished!!

Saturday I walked in a 5K here in Kune sponsored for the American Diabetes Association. I signed up for it with a burst of optimism and then as the date neared I feared I would not be able to finish but decided to go and walk as far as I could. I finished with the support of two sweet sisters who walked with me when they could easily have gone faster. I really appreciated them. I even won a door prize - they drew for several of them. I may sign up for the one associated with Kuna Days or the one in Melba next month. Stephanie's hamburger buns were wonderful and Michelle's cupcakes were every bit as good as they looked. Made me want to get something to stuff some with good stuff when I get some made here.

Congratulations on finishing the 5K, that is an amazing accomplishment. I hope you're not too sore after that! It was nice to be able to see you and Grandpa on Saturday. Glad you enjoyed the food too! :-)

Wow. I am SO impressed that you did the 5K. I think I would have a hard time doing it. And it's always a nice bonus when you win something. I'm glad you were able to do that.

IMPRESSIVE!! I wish I could say I have done something like that--but no! :)

WAY TO GO! Am proud of you!

I think it's great you finished the whole thing. I have actually never done a walk like that, I always figured running around with the kids was enough for me. :-) Glad you liked the cupcakes!

Wow! Way to go for doing a 5K. Nathan and I did one earlier in my pregnancy but I don't know that I could finish now. It is a good experience. We also won a door prize. That is so neat. I love winning stuff. Way to go Grandma!
