I raced today!

Sunday, March 17, 2013

Well, I participated in a race ... I ran (trotted) in a 5k for a Cancer run today - the Kerryman Pub 5k. It was my first, and I am very proud of having done it. I wondered whether or not I would feel strange about not being a "racer", but it didn't bother me. I trotted with a friend who hasn't been trotting for as long as I, and has only once done over 3.1 miles. I was very proud of the fact that we didn't stop to walk once - we kept a slow pace, but kept it going all the way. My husband took pictures before, during and after, and he was proud of me as well. It was a great day!
