A Great Weekend!

This weekend, our college buddies, Jenna & Charlie (and their 4 kids), drove up from San Diego for a visit. Jenna and I were signed up to run the Surf City 5K in Huntington Beach. After an awful night of 2 hours worth of sleep, we woke up at the 5:45 am to head out and drive to Huntington Beach. After a crazy roundabout detour through Huntington Beach, we finally found a parking spot and walked to the 5K staging area, where we stretched and met some cute flag bearer.

We ran with 3,000 other people, which was fun because everyone had a smile on their face, including us!

We finished the race pretty close together. This was the first time that I've ever run longer than 2 miles without stopping! It was a breakthrough for me. We had a blast and I sure do miss spending time with my former matron of honor, Jenna! Who, BTW, has convinced me to run the San Diego Rock 'n Roll Marathon in May.... what??? am I crazy??? 26.2 miles????
