my BFF's first 5k

My BFF Jessica ran her FIRST 5k on the 4th of July in her hometown area (Rupert, ID)!
She has been OFFICIALLY bitten by the running bug!
and I couldn’t be more excited or MORE proud of her!
stole this from her FB page… thanks Jess!
She’s also started a weight loss competition with some friends and family and has a blog to document everyone’s progress. She’s been kicking major booty and has lost 16+ lbs in the last 3 weeks!
She’s doing SO AWESOME!

I have absolutely LOVED seeing these status updates on facebook for the last few months!

love this quote!

REALLY REALLY love this!!
I hope that when Diz and I have kids that they will want to be healthy and exercise!!
Her race ended up being about 3.5 miles (which was a personal distant record for her! wahoo!) and she ran at a faster pace than she ever has during training!
When she was texting me about the race I admitted to her that I was getting a little teary eyed.
There is nothing better than hearing someone else figure out how great running (or any exercise) is. How they can see changes in not only their body, but their mindset as well.
I LOVE that my BFF is a RUNNER now!
(I loved her before, and I’d love her if she wasn’t a runner, but still — She’s a RUNNER now! LOVE)
and now she wants to do a 10k!
and I want to do it with her.
We’re looking for a race in August or September
(but not 8/18 – I have a half marathon, and not 9/22 – she’s running the dirty dash)
anyone know of any great LOCAL (Utah county or SLC) races??
Help a girl & my RUNNER BFF out!!

    Awesome!!! Love, love, love hearing about new runners and seeing them catch that first runners high. Makes me so very happy.Come down to Payson and run the Payson Onion Days 10k. It is on Labor Day. I do not know the date at the moment but it is a fun race with tons of drawings/prizes afterwards.
