    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!

    Yours in health,

    5K Completed!!!
    mrswhitecastle posted:
    Emily and I did our first 5K today! It was great!

    My first goal was to not be last. We weren't, by far. My second goal was to be done in under an hour, and we easily made that goal, too. I'm so glad that we decided to do it together. I'm really proud of Emily.

    DH said that he and Elizabeth want to do it with us next year. Elizabeth will only be 6, so I don't know if she will be able to do it or not. We have awhile to decide.

    Afterwards we went out to Brunch. All in all, a pretty great day!

    Contemplating doing our Turkey Trot 5k this year. But it is in only 2.5 weeks & I haven't been training.

    We weren't able to train as much as I would have liked. I was out of town the week before the race, and then got sick the week of it.

    The best piece of advice I got was this: Emily wasn't going to remember our time, she was going to remember the event. So, no matter what time/place we came in, she is always going to feel proud of finishing.
