Girls Vacation Trip - Gulf Shores!

The girls (and Lee) had such a wonderful time on our Girls Trip to Gulf Shores! And we all have tans to prove it! The weather was beautiful, the food was delicious, and the conversation was fun! And, of course, what would a Black Family Vacation be without games? We played put-put golf (I won!) and several games of nine hole game (after a very long walk to find a deck of cards)! And since it was a girls trip we also shopped! I can hardly wait for next year! :)

My First 5K!

Today my friend Amy and I ran in our first 5K - Run for the King at Smith Park in Jackson! I must admit that I was a bit nervous, especially since I have not trained outside. Not to mention, my training came to a hault on Tuesday bc of my crazy work week. Either way, we rose early and headed downtown to run!
A 5K is 3.2 miles, so we set a personal goal to finish in under 35 minutes. It was more challenging than I imagined - I had not really thought about hills or an unsure route or my old tennis shoes. But I was so proud to finish in 31 minutes and 30 seconds. Yay!
I am already looking forward to my next 5K. My new goal will be 30 minutes!

I think that I will take it as a compliment!!! :)
