Running and 5k's

Ten years ago I was finishing up my first year at Columbia State. At that time I felt like running was only something that someone made me do. Today I really enjoy running. It relieves stress, keeps me fit (sort of), and is something that Allison, me, and Cooper can all do together. Yesterday me and Nick ran in the Rescue 5k benefiting the Nashville Rescue Mission. I had the best time I have ever had after 2 miles and after 3.1. I finished in 28:16. Allison and Cooper went along and cheered us on between visiting the ducks at the pond at Centennial Park. Next Saturday all three of us are participating in the TN Run 4 Kids 5k at the Tennessee Baptist Children's Home in Brentwood. After the 5k there is a 1 mile run for kids 5-9 and a 100 yd. dash for kids up to 4. Cooper is making his competitive debut at the 100 yd. dash. If anyone in interested in running or walking in the race go here to sign up. There will be food, a Christian band playing during the event and lots of fun afterwards. Until next time...

Nice time buddy! I am so proud of you. You're going to make me look way out of shape next weekend no doubt!

Great job Jeremy! I love the picture of Cooper watching you, it's precious. I really like your shirt too, ;-)
