another 5K ...

Sunday, October 30, 2011

while i'm hit or miss being active on sparkpeople ... i'm staying active.

i ran a 5K on saturday with my workout buddy from work. i nicknamed her "Sox" because when we started working out together, she kept forgetting her socks. at first i would start the morning with "did you remember your workout gear today?", after the first few weeks, my daily question was shortened to ... "socks?" the question became more of a joke and then just what i call her all the time.

she's a pistal ... full of energy ... 4'10", probably 110 lbs and almost 30 years my junior. i love being around her, she's a breath of fresh air and highly motivated. she just joined the army reserves, so staying in shape is a must.

so far, i can still out run her most days ... you know i love that. she has me beat with upper body and core strength ... and as her training continues, i know she'll get stronger and stronger and run circles around me too. but until then ... i'm LOL all the way to the finish line.
