What a weekend!  To kick off my fabulous long 4th of July weekend I ran my very first 5K!  I can tell you right now that this will not be the last 5K that I run, what an amazing feeling to cross the finish line of that race.  This particular race was the Stein Hospice Regatta 5K, it honors hometown heros that have fallen to God's grace in our community.  I ran specifically for my father-in-law who passed away from cancer almost 4 years ago.  So this was a double whammy of gratitude for me!  I ended up finishing with a time of 26:40, which I'm saying was good for me since I was able to finish in under a half hour :)  Plus, it works out to be about 8 min per mile and for me that's pretty darn good!  But, what an accomplishment and a great way to kick off my weekend.

The rest of my weekend was filled with traditional 4th of July shenanigans.  We hung out at a friend's house with about 30-40+ of our other friends and their families, swimming in the pool, laying out in the sun, BBQ'in it up and of course fireworks!  Yesterday we kept it low key and my awesome foursome spent the day at the beach, grilled out on our brand new patio and ended it with a trip to Toft's for some ice cream and sparklers on the porch :)  It was a great weekend and it went entirely too fast!  But, back to the grind and I start my week off with Week 15 of Turbo and at the end of this week will mark my 90 day journey with the program.  So, you know what that means..... Stats time!  Next week I will be reporting my 90 numbers and I'm hoping for some more inches lost, let's keep our fingers crossed!

How was everyone else's weekend?  How are you getting back on track from the long festive weekend?
