I am a TROTTING TURKEY--yea for my first 5K race!
Cute Cute Stephanie asked me to run the "Turkey Trot 5K" (3 miles) with her--I accepted the challenge even though I had much self doubt--this being my first race. Steph & Sheila were super supportive and made this so so fun. It was a chilly morning run down the scenic coastline of Santa Cruz. We did it-- I ran every step. Jared & Ann rallied the troops & headed down to be the cutest cheerleading section ever. I'm sure I will never forget turning that first corner on the course, seeing my precious family jump up & down & smiling with such excitement. As I passed them I could hear Caden's ever so sweet chant of "Go Mommy, Go Mommy!" Number 336 didn't win the race but I felt like a HUGE winner in a whole different way.
