Amber did it! (my first born) She ran the Alan Stone 5K and placed 4th in her weight class (she competed against 140 lbs and up) and 4th in her age division (she is 24)! We are so incredibly proud of her.
Training for the 5K was part of her personal fitness strategy to get her weight off. So far she has lost 40+ lbs. Well meaning folks kept telling her that at her size she shouldnt run. Guess she showed them! :)
Technology was a huge part of the race. They all wore a digital device that measured their minutes and uploaded instantly to a Web site for results. Very cool.
Sad part is she didnt dream she placed so she went home before prizes were given out.
Run Amber! Run like the wind. Third base! (private joke)
