Run, Amber, Run

Saturday I ran in my first ever race!! I ran a 5K in the Reeds Lake Run in East Grand Rapids. A group of girls from my moms group and I started training about 6 weeks ago for the race. Erin, the veteran runner, was nice enough to set up a training schedule and help to coach us. None of us have ever have ever been runners before but we all finished the race and did great!! I didn't meet my goal of under 30 minutes but I came in at 30:46, not bad for my first race.
We had met a couple of weeks ago at Erin's and tie dyed shirts for the race.

Mandy and I buddied up and ran the race together. Here we are getting close to the finish line.
