With the help of quite a cheering section, I completed my first 5K this morning.  After nine weeks of training through subzero temperatures, more than my fair share of snow and ice and very few nice days, wouldn't you know that today was beautiful.  The perfect weather for my first go round with a 3.1 mile race.

Next up:  Run for Congo in Indianapolis on April 2.  Dare I say that I am looking forward to it.
