Rex Lee Memorial Run


I did it! I have NEVER run a race, but today I completed my first 5K. I didn't run the whole way but I sure gave it my all. I can sort of see how this could be addicting. I definitely want to do it again so I can improve my time. I would really love to be able to run the whole way.
Egan and Kristine joined me in the run (aren't they cute?)- and they DID run the whole way. Egan did the 10K and beat me. We all ran in honor of Kenyon. It was so cool to run for cancer research with so many other people. I also loved running around BYU campus. It brought back lots of good memories. The only thing that I really hated - IT WAS COLD. My lungs hurt so bad.
Next year - I want you all to join me!

Cute pics!! We did the 5K too and looked for ya but to no avail. Probably because we were in the waaaaaaay back of the group :) It was SO fun to run (well, walk) in the race. I second the COLD- it was freezing! We were wondering why they don't push it back a month or so- they may even have more of a turnout if its warmer.

I was going to run a 5K yesterday as well, here on the base, but it was cold, rainy, and Addie was throwing up, I just couldn't do that to my babysitter. Maybe next month. Good Job!!!!

Hooray for you Annie! Check that off your to-do list. Or maybe add it to your do-every-year list!

Addictive? Are you kidding me? Now, chocolate, THAT's addictive. Diet Coke, addictive. Twilight, addictive. You get my point.

You're amazing! Maybe Kenyon can run it with you next year!
