~First Race~

I ran my first race ever this morning !

And guess what... I got 2nd place in my age group !!

~Had fun running with my daddy and our friend Allen~
Now I'm off to spend the rest of the day at the pool with my fam :-)

Happy Saturday !!

“You pretended the snooze button didn’t exist. You dragged your butt out of bed while others slept. While others ate their pancakes you had a feast of protein, glucose and electrolytes. You double-knotted. You left the porch light on and locked the door behind you. You ran. 5ks, 10ks, 26.2 miles. Some days more, some days less. You rewarded a long run with a short run. And a short run with a long run. Rain tried to slow you. Sun tried to microwave you. Snow made you feel like a warrior. You cramped. You bonked. You paid no mind to comfort. On weekends. On holidays. You made excuses to keep going. Questioned yourself. Played mind games. Put your heart before your knees. Listened to your breathing. Sweat sunscreen into your eyes. Worked on your farmers tan. You hit the wall. You went through it. You decided to be a man about it. You decided to be a woman about it. Finished what you started. Proved what you were made of. Just kept putting mile after mile on your internal odometer.”


  1. Way to go, Jamie! I bet it felt wonderful crossing that finish line! :) So much fun!

  2. So this is a little random, but would you mind sending me the link to the post of the buffalo chicken dip recipe? I remember seeing it on here a while ago and I want to make it! Thanks!
