Baby Rimes

Category: Baby Sites – Mommy Rimes – 7:00 pm

This past January, I made the same resolution everyone else in North America makes, eat less, get skinny, run a lot. Only I added this totally wacky part about having to finish a 5k race.
The good news is I have accomplished my goal and I may now rest. And a long and rewarding rest it will be. This morning I finished my very first (and maybe last) 5k, and I wasn’t LAST! That’s the best part.

Daddy and Baby were there to cheer me on at the start and there for my last ditch effort of making it to the finish line. I didn’t win any awards, but I’m so gosh darn proud of myself for having finished and not passing out somewhere around the 1 mile mark.

Daddy and Baby brought me some fabulous good luck snap dragons before the race. Aren’t they sweet? Then, after the race, Daddy let Mommy take a well deserved nap on the couch while Baby did her afternoon nap thing. My legs still hurt though. I don’t think that kind of pain will easily be forgotten.

So now, I just have to work on those first two resolutions…


  1. I’m very proud of you Nikki!

  2. Congratulations! That’s a big accomplishment. I haven’t run a 5k since 1994. There are some vitamins that can help with the soreness called FYI Restore from Garden of Life. Works for me after a tough session of yoga and I’ve been taking them everyday since I sprained my ankle.
