Bolder Boulder

I did it!
After months of training, I was able to run the 10k Bolder Boulder this Memorial Day. When Griff was 6 weeks old, I started jogging. I could last for one minute. Everyone always worries about losing the baby weight, but I really wanted to feel as strong as I did before Griff was born. Although labor was the most difficult physical task I've ever undertaken, I needed a post-pregnancy challenge. I thought that I could do it, but was still amazed when I crossed the finish line. My goal was to run without time goal...just keep jogging. Although I couldn't find Jose and Griff along the course, they found me at 7.5 km. They were a great supportive team. And, all three of us are worn out!
