I finally uploaded our pics from the Giant Race from a few weekends ago. We had SO much fun, and if you follow me on Facebook and Instagram you may have noticed that Jeff ran with my mom and I for the very first time!! Let’s start by saying that he HATES running. He is not a fan of cardio, although he lifts with me on a daily basis. He has always sworn he will never run with me…until now. I don’t know what I convinced him, but I did. We were a little nervous for him, as he has not ran in over 10 years up until the day of the race. (Not recommended!) Believe it or not, he did awesome!! I stuck with him throughout and we finished with 9:30 pace. So proud!

Running with family and friends is the absolute best. If you have a family member that isn’t into running, start with a 5k. Make it a family affair. (I actually convinced my Dad to join us in our next 5k!!!) Encourage your loved ones to get out there with you, its a great environment to be around like minded, active, happy people.
