Resolution Run 5K

I started off 2012 in the best way possible... sleeping in, snuggling with my kids, morning crafts and then out for a run with my awesome Sole Sisters.  I'm so impressed that over 20 women showed up for the New Year's Day run.


It was fairly warm for January 1st in Illinois at a 37 degrees, but the 25 mph winds were just plain annoying. Luckily we ran the Rock Island Trail, where we had some tree cover.  After yesterday's 11-miler, my legs (calves!) were a little sore.  So I held my Resolution Run to an easy-paced 5K as a recovery run.

The sun completely whited out the Resolution Run bib... so here's a closeup!

I have the same "RESOLUTION" as always... slim it and trim it baby!
I really hope to reach my goal weight this year.
30 lbs to go!

  2. Great job on your Resolution Run!

    I finished mine this morning, I counted the second 5K of my 7.5 mile race (31:34).

    I LOVE that you have so many people to run with, that is one of my goals this year: to train with people other than my husband or our moms. I need to start researching running groups near me!
