Tombstone 5K & What about Lance?
Monday, October 22, 2012
My DH took this shot as I passed the finish line. I did better than my last 5K, too, :)
My sis & I at my neighborhood's 5K Tombstone Run this past weekend. My 3rd 5K...
Wow! Already wrapping up the last few weeks of October already! My sister & I ran a "Tombstone" 5K in one of the cemeteries in our area. We opted to wear costumes. There are quite a few cemeteries in our area. It was a lot of fun to see everyone's Halloween wear. I also did a bit better than my last time.
Just read the news about Lance Armstrong...I'm still on the fence about it. I do not advocate drug use whatsoever, but I'm wondering was it ever actually proved that he took the drugs or was it what people said about him? Stripping away his 7 titles is harsh, but if he actually did those things, then it is the most appropriate & fair thing to do. No one is perfect. Everybody makes mistakes & wrong choices. I could never be the athlete his is, without the drugs, so he is still a super athlete to me. He also has inspired millions battling cancer, myself included, & his mistakes won't ever change that fact. Hope he fares well & keeps his spirits up. It looks like he has a tough road ahead of him...but I believe he can pull through - he is a survivor. :)
Been keeping busy with the family this month & time is certainly flying! Signing up for the "Turkey Trot" 5K in my area for next month & I'm gearing up for my SP virtual 5K next week. Started an 8 week 10K training program this week, as well. As always, many thanks for the likes, comments & daily inspiration!!! All the best on all of your fitness goals!
