I registered with my 9 year old grandon for my first 5K in many years. He just beat out all the kids in his class in the mile a couple of days ago. He ran an amazing 6:45. Reminds me so much of his mom. She ran, and won, her first 5k at his age and went on to run in high school and college. Though she's run a few marathons she prefers the half. She's been invited to run in Las Vegas in December. I used to run and also play other sports, but MS kind of ended all that. I've not had to use wheel chair for quite awhile now. I can walk well mostly right now and have two weeks to prepare for this 5K fundraiser for a boy with cancer. I know I'll mostly walk, but look forward to a few minute jog here and there. Today I walked more than 13,000 steps. Tomorrow I look forward to running a few in my first pair of running shoes that I just bought today. I feel like a kid!
