Paradise Bound 5k, Personal Record, and Running with Pippa!!!

Today, finally my girl and I were able to run a 5k together!!! Well as together as a 12 year old and a 47 year old can!!! We ran in a 5k which benefits an organization called Paradise Bound. This organization helps people in Guatemala, by providing homes and medical services. The money raised today went to the building of homes that a team will be building in February.

It was a beautiful day for a race!!! My only issues where I overdressed, and that pesky asthma!!! Breathing was an issue, but are you ready for this ~ I ran my personal best!!! I came in under 40 minutes!!! That is a 1st!!! My time was around 39:36, and Bekah's time was around 29:36. We are waiting for the official times to see how close we come to those numbers.

We also ran with a group of ladies from our Women's Ministry!! See our cools Scarves?! Jennifer @ Zaankali's Adventure made them all for us!!!

It was a great morning, celebrated with a late breakfast at a local restaurant!!!

It was so fun to run this with so many people I knew. I hope we get even more Lighthouse Ladies and daughters next year.

Hi Kim! I was Bekah's camp counselor this summer. Hey I read your last post and you mentioned Paradise Bound Ministries in Guatemala. I am working with them as well and heading out there in March. I would love to chat more about how you got connected with them and hear all about your planning for the trip! My email is Please say hello to Bekah for me :) I miss her and my camp girls so much. God Bless.
