April 23rd we checked in at the registration table, lined up at the starting gate, ran and walked 'til our lungs almost burst, and crossed the finish line :) 5K officially completed! Wohoo! Sam finished in 35 minutes and I was a little further behind at 45 minutes, but I was just happy to not die along the course! Ha! Not having my inhaler meant my lungs felt like lead the entire time, which didn't always make for a nice race, but it was exciting to be part of a 5K. We received official numbers and these cool ID tags for our shoes that tracked our time when we crossed the finish line.
A big thank you to my mom, dad, sister, and brother who also came out to raise awareness for Autism!!
Now, back to the training for our next 5K in September for Congenital Heart Defect Awareness!
