Did I really just run that?

>> Saturday, January 2, 2010

Back in October I posted about starting to take the girls for walks in the mornings. It was nice and we have a lot of fun seeing all the neat things that our area has to offer (vultures, hawks, horses, goats, hens, and donkeys top the list). I would walk on my own Sundays when Matt was home and started to sort of jog part of my route. With Matt being home for the time being I am able to get out on my own a little more often and jog a little farther each time. I decided to make myself a goal so I emailed a friend of mine that runs with her family and told her that I thought I might like to try a 5k around the 1st of the year. Ha, she quickly emailed me back about a race that was just a week away - ack! I agreed but unfortunately it was postponed b/c of the "blizzard" we had that weekend. Well, now it was going to be after the 1st of the year just like I had hoped. I had all these grand ideas I would "train" for this, before this morning the last time I actually did anything was before Christmas lol :) This morning as I was getting ready I was thinking of every excuse that might work to get me out of running. Besides a head cold and never sleeping b/c of the all night breastaurant that I manage I didn't have any good excuse. Off we went. I love that Matt brought the girls. They watched a movie b/c it was like 29 degrees out but there they were at the finish line when I came through. Thank you for that Matt. Anywho, 1st race and I finished 84th out of 117 runners with a time of 31 minutes 35 seconds AND I won a Lancaster's BBQ gift card as a door prize. Money went to a local fire department so woo hoo - everyone wins today!
