So … I finished the 5K … and … drum roll please … I ran the whole thing! Yippee!
I must say, the race was hard. My body was telling me to give up at multiple times, but I was able to tough it out! And, I have to say “Thank you!” to those who are reading! I wanted to finish. And I wanted to be able to say that I finished on my blog! ha! (I should start blogging about other goals. Maybe it would give me motivation to work on those goals. Wink, wink!)
I don’t know my time yet, as they had some sort of timing difficulties. Our times are supposed to be posted later this week. I may have been the slowest person who ran the whole race, but I’m not sure. Several people who finished just ahead of me were doing a run/walk combo.
I enjoy reading Jon Acuff’s blog. He recently posted on Twitter:
“Jogging helps me outrun the doubts that tell me I’m not a ‘real writer.’ I always return with more ideas than I left with.”
Running helps me with writing ideas, as well, and I got several new ideas while running yesterday. Stay tuned!
