Day 8...I DID it!!!!!! First 5k!
Sunday, June 23, 2013
Well, I got up at 6 am, drove out to pick up my sis-in-law a town north of me, then drove thru 2 more towns to get to the race. I didn't plan to run it and I didn't, I don't run, I haven't walked more than 3 miles in several years so this was really big for me. My shins were killing me and my one calf almost told me off but I DID IT! It was funny, after I hit the midway point my legs hurt less and as I neared the end I almost felt as if I could have ran a little...next time I will, but for now, walking it was such an accomplishment. It was for a great cause too; MS.
Here are a few pics from the day...
