5K’s First Female!

Do you guys remember me mentioning that 5K I’ve spent two weeks training for? Well, I won! I won first in my category and first over all the women! I was very surprised but very glad to have one first over all the women. I’m so happy all my hard work paid off! Every year…

Happy Friday!

Last night we had a beautiful Costa Rican sunset.
