I DID IT!!!

I reached my next goal!  I placed in the top three in my age group in a 5k race.  I placed second actually!  (I can hardly believe it.)  My best friend Tara and I ran a race at a the local Celtic festival last night.  It was a great run.  And the festival was a good time too.  I felt really good when I was running.  Just a little winded as I haven't been back to training for long.  But that is okay- I made it.  Final time = 27:58. Down 42 seconds from my last 5k.  When my name was called I was totally shocked to hear it.  I really couldn't tell where I was in the pack during the run.  I did get a little teary eyed as I accepted my silver medal so I was glad to have my shades on.... or rather Grace's shades on.  Anyway-  I have to set a new goal now.  I didn't expect to reach that one so soon.  Hmmmmm.  I'll have to get back to you.  For now I am just super happy.  Peace out!

My shades look hot on you! Props on placing! I sent that picture to all my friends and a few total strangers. We are all so proud.

Champions aren’t made in gyms. Champions are made from something they have deep inside them-a desire, a dream, a vision. They have to have last-minute stamina, they have to be a little faster, they have to have the skill and the will. But the will must be stronger than the skill.

Saw this and thought of you....
