Second Year of CorreMania!

It was another 10KM in the city, so I thought. What was I thinking.....turns out it was almost 1 KM longer than a real 10KM, almost 7 miles. Members of the IDC Running Club were one of the many participants. There was a 1KM for kids, 5KM and a 10KM. The route actually tooks us by the United States Embassy. However, I did not feel very patriotic to salute my country's flag as I ran by it twice!

This is Jessica and her son Nate. This was Nate's first race ever and he finished the 5k in under 35 minutes with no training! He now has the "running" bug and I am sure he will be participating in future events.
On the route, there are photographers taking candid shots. This is Manolo and I looking all spiffy! This is Manolo's 3rd race with the IDC Running Club. He will be celebrating his one year anniversary of sobriety!! He credits God and his running to keep him focused on being clean. Gracias Dios!!!! He has quoted on Facebook..."just i want 2 write thanks God 4 have a nice and lovely family: IDC DA TEAM (Da Queen, Da Quencita,my Nan)....CHURCH....FAMILY....and friends. like u.... LOVE = GOD"
This is Manolo and I crossing the finish line....our time for almost 7 miles, up hill both ways......1:10!!!

We all had a great time and ended the day with a meal at Wendy's!!!!

Hanging out with friends

A good friend of mine and her sisters invited me to hang out with them for the weekend. Tonja's sisters, Darla and Rhonda are from South Carolina and came to spend 4 days with her. They were so kind and let me join them for a day and half. It was great to hang out and be myself. Some great talks, laughs and great food. What about that diet???? Oh yeah, the new food plan starts Monday!

A Visit from far away

On March 6th, Amber came to visit her parents and brings a long a friend. His name is Ben. We had a great time with them both. Along with shopping at the Mercado, picnic in the park, going to church, and venturing to the beach, which is about an hour away from Antigua, we had fun! I am thankful that she still wants to hang out with her parents!
