I Did It !

Tuesday, January 25, 2011

I Ran My First 6K Cross Country,

I Arrived Early To Register At Mt Trash More, Virginia Beach

C~O~L~D ! @ 24 Degrees with the wind Chill Factor Felt like 10

My Hubby and a few friends were baffled as to why I wanted to Run in this Cold

Weather I said "Piece Of Cake"

I Talked to a few new Runners so that eased my mind. I was not Nervous at all.

Just wanted to hurry up and go Run to warm -up.

At 8am we were off Running , I saw Mile Markers, I knew I was good to go, up hills

down hills, now this was the tricky part. Hills I had no Idea but I hung in there

the run Consist of 2 LONG Complete Laps around the Grounds. Up and down


I Came down from my last hill, knowing I'm headed to the Finish line.

I was not First nor was I last.

I Just Loved It ! Cold and All

    Woohoo! Saw your post saying you wanted help for 1/2 marathon training. I am planning this too but way behind you. I know TheCRAZYMANGO is training right now and was considering looking for a training buddy.

Either way, I am happy to support you and check in on you. Who knows you certainly could inspire me to keep going with my training.

emoticon - The half that is. You did the 6! Yeah!
