I Did It!!!

Saturday, July 28, 2012

37:24 for my first 5K race in many, many years. My strategy was to walk uphill, run downhill, and on the level stretches, run in the sunny parts to get to the shady parts! LOL. My plan worked far better than I ever dreamed. I figured I'd come in in the 45-50 minute range. The young lady with me is my fourteen-year-old daughter. It was a lovely morning as well. We were blessed.

The rest of today . . . I hope to be able to enjoy an AA picnic, but, I got a call from my sister last night that my dad had had a big seizure and was in the hospital. I guess he suffered a head injury that didn't get proper medical attention about a week ago. I will keep you all posted. But for now, I am going to enjoy my accomplishment, my sobriety, and trust the God is watching over my dad and play the waiting game on that one.

    congrats on your 5K - quite an accomplishment!

Hopefully you will hear good news re: your dad. AA picnic sounds like fun - spending time with people that understand what it is like to make the decision to be AF.

Your daughter is beautiful!
