1st 5k of the year with one of my favorite running partners #BDR2015 #FitFluential

I've only completed 1 registered run this year and it was the Disney 10K in January.
So I'm ready to run my 1st 5k of 2015.
I don't mind running alone, whether it's around my neighborhood, fun run, or chip timed run. But having one of my running partners there is always a bonus.

On Saturday January 7th, I ran Best Damn Race Safety Harbor.
This was my 1st time running this particular event and I was all set to do it alone, but then my handsome 12 year old asked if he could run it with me.
Luke ran his fastest time in a 5k.
This was his 3rd timed race and he finished at 34:42.
I'm super proud !
My boys are pretty independent and know what they like and don't like.
There are time when I ask them to do things and they aren't interested.
But when they ask to participate with me in a run, it makes my heart swell.
Not only do they want to be with me, in public no less, but we are doing something healthy and active.
Even though I began running at 39, I am able to show my kids that I can do anything I put my mind to. I hope they can do that everyday !
I did not make my personal best record, but I'm happy with the run.
Now, I'm getting ready for the Gasparilla 15k & 8k.
I'll be doing the 15k with Jenny from Metamorfit and the 8k with hubby !
It's never too late to make a change !
Let's get moving !
