J’s first 5k and Zida’s first Haircut

Happy Friday!!  Who has fun plans for the weekend?!

Today I just wanted to share a couple of fun things from the past few days…


Two fun *firsts* happened this week!

On Tuesday evening, Jesse ran his first 5k!

We actually ran the whole fun run together.  We finished in 28:04, and the average pace was faster than Jesse’s run before – so proud of him!

If you’re a local reader, we’re doing the run again this coming Tuesday evening – it’s a ton of fun, so if you’d like the details about the event, send me an email!


The other first that happened was that Zida got her first haircut!

I was (embarrassingly) sad when dropping her off – is that what moms feel like when they drop their child off at preschool for the first time?
(I’m dramatic…and mostly joking…)

Zida's first haircut Before & After

Yep, she’s still cute!  :)


What was your latest “first”?!

Do you and your significant other run or workout together?


  1. Congratulations to Jesse! Jordan and I work out/run together occasionally, and it’s so much fun! Lately, he’s been working overtime so it just hasn’t worked out, but I enjoy working out with him when we can fit it in the schedule.

    One week until HLS!! I’m getting excited to meet you!

  2. My husband and I sign up for races together, but because our paces are so different, we don’t necessarily run “together.” It’s still fun though!

  3. My first – making homemade applesauce last night. Messy but fun and good!

    I wish my husband ran with me – instead I’ve got my little 2-year boy to push in the stroller and he entertains me the whole way :)

  4. My latest first was having a PSL for the season and making zucchini cookie whoopee pies! So good! I always said I wanted a boyfriend who runs, but only time will tell ;-)

    I am ALWAYS nervous when I drop Elmo off anywhere. He’s with me 24/7 since my surgeries and we both suffer separation anxiety which is, sadly, true. LOL She looks great, though! What a great haircut!

  5. Zida looks absolutely adorable!! :-)

  6. I have never liked to workout with my significant other, but I think I would be okay with running a race together!

  8. I am beginning to start running with an significant other. The relationship is still new and I am adjusting to running with someone else. Hopefully it works out!

  10. Yay to your husband for his first 5k! and Zida looks great :) I don’t think it’s dramatic at all. Dogs are part of the family!

  11. Congrats on hubby’s first 5k! And the dog looks really cute!

    My latest first would be yesterday when I ran in a 5k I completely ran it, with NO walking breaks at all, for the first time in a race.
