Starting the Summer with a 5K

Summer is upon us and what is better to do on a Saturday morning than welcome in summer with a 5K? Benefiting Shriner's Hospital, our Moms in Motion group were off and running again. This was the culminating event for the Spring session. It wasn't too crowded as I know these events can be, but yet there were quite a few die-hard athletes out there trying to improve their time in the 5K or 8K events. Our mamas were quite HOT out there, if I do say so myself. I came trailing along with the girls supporting me, yet finished 1 minute/2 seconds more than the last 5K. I guess there's always next time. However, just crossing that finish line is enough of a reward for me. That evening, us mamas celebrated our victories with dinner and some girl cackling at Paesano's. Yum! The Tortellini Formaggio was awesome, as well as the Caesar Salad and Polenta Fries. I came out of there reeking of garlic. It's all good.

Kymm and I are ready to roll.

Tamiko, Corina and Wendy (our fearless leader) enjoying some Sangria.

Just some of our women here celebrating our success.
