Early this morning (4:20am to be exact) my alarm sounded, and I peeled myself out of bed.
Why did I choose to awaken on a gloriously beautiful Saturday before the sun had even appeared?
My friends, Jayme, Katrina and I participated in the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure 5k walk today.
I have never participated in anything like this before- it really was an incredible experience.
From the cheerleaders on the sidelines encouraging us on, to the rush I felt when we crossed the finish line and I realized that not only had I succeeded, I felt GREAT! A few months ago, I know I would have struggled almost the entire way. I feel awesome- and will be doing another one in April.
My goal for next year is to be a competitive RUNNER in the 5K!! I think I can do it. :)

Pictures from our day to follow soon! :) I'm tired, and satisfied, and off to the comforts of my bed that I left way to early this morning. But, it was for a good cause, and YEAH ME! I did it. :D
