a PR and a medal...

Today was my first 5K since Thanksgiving. While I didn't achieve the time I had originally hoped for, I am still very proud of myself. I placed 1st in my age group...woo-hoo! And, I set a new personal record for myself by finishing in 23:39. I finished 33rd overall out of 145 total runners and I was the 5th female across the finish line. I gave it everything I had and that's what matters! Now I'm off to bed so I can be well rested for my 10 mile run tomorrow...oy!

*And just a side note...I went shopping and fit into size 6 jeans! Now I just have to find the "perfect pair"*

Congratulations on the run - a fantastic accomplishment! I was first in my age group in a five mile run back in 1995! Didn't have screwed up knees then ;( . Well done!

A size 6! SHUT-UP!! Super Wow! My favorite line in this post is "I set a new personal record for myself." THAT one sentence says a mouthful.

Congratulations Tiffany-you are an inspiration.

Yeah! Kohl's has way cute jeans in the Junior's section. A size 6 should translate to a 9 or 11 in Juniors. How cool is that? You can shop in the Junior's section!!!
