Turkey Trot, Flemington, New Jersey ~ 51:11.............

Fifty one minutes and eleven seconds. That is the time of Emma Sage's FIRST 5K.

She DID it!!!!

She is just too funny......

She ran and ran....and walked. But she did it......she kept on going. She thought the water break was cool and she was jogging and drinking and then tossed her cup off to the side like an old pro.

There were lots of volunteers on the corners [who remembered Emma Sage from Special Olympics so they really cheered her on] She was also the greatest cheerleader, as she would pass people and say "Come on...you can do it!"

On Main Street she started sprinting and had a smile bright across her face [ I so wish I was able to get a picture of that, but I was running with her and there was no way to carry a camera].....and she was waving and blowing kisses to everyone along the streets cheering her on.

Her first Turkey Trot. How cool is this first milestone?

Wow, way to go! That's awesome! For some reason I've never bookmarked your blog. I think because I was always able to read about Emma Sage on your Flickr posts. But I'm finding it hard to keep up with my contacts on Flickr lately, so I'm bookmarking you now. :-) She's a real inspiration.
