It was great! It was my first 10K so I was focused on finishing without walking. The 10K consisted of 2 laps around the campus, wheras the 5K was only 1 lap, so it was a little disheartening to see people cross the finish line to finish, while you are crossing for lap 2. I started off slow to run with my sorority sister until she stopped to walk around 1.5 miles, plus she was only doing the 5K, so then I just sped up to see how many people I could pass before I finished. It started raining a little around mile 5, so I felt like a real runner even though my thighs were screaming by then. It was such an amazing feeling to finish, the University of Arizona marching band was playing, people were cheering, and I could see the finish line, and I just had this tremendous burst of energy and looked past the sore thighs to finish strong. I still can't believe I did it. I had actually managed to almost catch up with my friend who was far in front, and finished 2 minutes behind her. It was a great accomplishment and I can't wait to do it again in January.

Thanks for asking!

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
