Lennox Tour Des Fluers, Dallas, TX

My first 10k was this past weekend...I had alot of fun. It was at the beautiful White Rock Lake here in Dallas. I POWERwalked it with my friend Lisa and her kids. But my stupid shoes arent used to me walking/running longer than 3-4 miles. So, around mile 5, I started getting blisters and had to take one of them off and walk the rest of it with one shoe on and one off. That sucked.....My brother (The Super Runner) ran it with my Uncle Bryan. Jonathan beat his last 10k time by 2 minutes. Snaps for Jonathan!!!
Afterwards, we went to eat at this German restaurant in Highland Park. If you arent to fond of German food like me, you would appreciate it- as I did not. But the guys loved it.
Anyway, we had a good time. I hope that it will motivate me to train better and more often. The energy at these runs is amazing and crossing the finish line feels great....See pics here.....http://www.yoursportingimage.com/Image.asp?catalogID=2243345 , http://www.yoursportingimage.com/Image.asp?catalogID=2245871 , http://www.yoursportingimage.com/Image.asp?catalogID=2244198.

Wow, what a summer! Here is what I have been up to lately:

1. Running (sometimes haha)...Have a 10k to run on the 20th. Wish me luck!
2. Quit Hyatt, found a new job. Should start sometime this week with a Christain company. Im really excited about that.
3. Not eating raw :( I TOTALLY fell off the wagon but have seriously been thinking about getting back on. Its a big committment and I dont want to fail again.
4. Spending more time with family and my husband...Took a nice trip to Hot Springs for my b-day. That was fun. Will post pics soon.

How about you?
