Better Late Than Never

Saturday, February 09, 2013

They finally posted the 5K photos from the Rotary Twilight 5K eight days ago. On the day of this 5K I was too sore to run hard, so stayed with my nephew to pace him. He is a beginning runner and a newly diagnosed diabetic who is being pretty successful managing his diabetes with diet and exercise. He has totally changed his eating and exercise habits and I am very, very proud of him.



Thank heavens I am no longer sore. I enjoyed a great 12 mile run today with a wonderful group of runners around my age. We started at 5 am, saw the sun rise, and finished after 7:30. Then we sat around, drank coffee, and chatted for a long time. We talk when we run, but we chat when we sit. I like both.

Hope you are having a great day!

    congrats on continuing the 5K and slowing down to not injury yourself since being sore before the run.
Your nephew is a wise person completely changing his eating and exercise habits since finding out he;s a new diabetic. Good job on his part,, as some just go into telling themselves they aren't diabetic and continue their old ways for some time. Always glad to hear some step right up to the plate immediately, continued success for your nephew.

    I know several people who were on diabetes medications who lost weight and are now symptom free and do not need the medications. I hope your nephew will experience the same results from the effort he is making.

    Love that finish line photo. Congrats to your nephew. It's encouraging when people start to take charge of their health.

Sounds like a great friendly run this morning, too. I didn't go as long myself, wimping down to a little under 8, with my son, though, so it was special.
