I haven't been doing much quilting since I got my job in February. Which by the way I love.
I did take up running in May.
Last year some friends of mine ran the Breast Cancer Run down at the lakefront in Milwaukee for me, being a survivor and well I opened my big mouth and told them I would join them next year. Jen reminded me in May. She knew it would take me a few months to prepare for the Sept. 21st run. And she was right. I started very slowly in May. The weather was terrible but, in the last 2 months I have been running as much as I can. I signed up for a 5 K in Elm Grove. It was raising money for Alzheimer's. Little did I know 2 days before the race my mom was diagnosed with early stages of Alzheimer's. The Lord works in mysterious ways. So I continue to try and run faster. My first 5 K was fun. All the girls were cheering me on and bought me a after my first 5K MOJITO!!
It was delicious!! I have one more 5 K before the Breast Cancer Run. If you feel so inclined to donate to my cause you can here. I'm trying to raise $100.
Here's a few photos I took this summer.. Except the one of me Mike took. I'm having a lot of fun with my camera too. Life Is Good!!
