5k in May

Even before I had Jaxton I have wanted to get into running. Now it is a little more motivating because I want to loose all the baby weight! Women would tell me that if I started I wouldn't want to stop and that it would become addictive. Well a good friend of my mothers, Tammy Mobley, puts a 5k(3 miles) on in her neighborhood. I thought this would be a good start.
When Jace finished school I talked him into being my personal trainer and motivator. We started Monday and today I ran 2 miles. It felt really good but I am definately not at the point of addiction. It was hard! I only have the rest of this month to be ready for it so I am nervous but excited to accomplish this goal I have had forever!

Here is a picture of Jaxton on Easter! He looked adorable!

Hey Whit! That's great you're gonna do a 5k! I was really into running about 4 months ago before Christmas, I actually was running 3miles a day! I love it! Too bad I took a "break" though cuz it ended up being a four month break! I'm starting up again now though so hopefully I wont be as lazy this time. By the way... Jaxton is so adorable! He's going to be a heartbreaker when he's older!

Good for you!! I'm hoping I'll be able to do some little races this summer to stay in shape!! Jaxton is so cute, I can't believe how old he is already!

That's cool you're training for a 5K. I've been starting up running lately also. Tyson and I ran a marathon last October and it was so hard we stopped after it haha...it's hard to get back into the swing of things. Good luck with that! Your baby is absolutely adorable!
