Rosie Crosses the Finish Line!!!

Friday, April 19, 2013

Rosie, my very willing companion, and I finished our 5K walk on Saturday in exactly 1 hour. Not the fastest time, but truly an accomplishment for both of us. When I got Rosie as a rescue dog less than 2 years ago it was difficult for her to walk 10 minutes without tiring. Saturday she didn't show any signs of fading until 2.5 miles, but kept on like a trooper! I'm very proud of both of us. But mostly, I'm so happy I could do SOMETHING for friend Carol who has cancer, instead of the helpless feeling I had. Carol and her husband waited in their car at the finish line (Carol in her bathrobe) to thank me. What a great feeling!!

    I saw the title of your blog and all I could think of was Rosie Ruiz and the Boston Marathon. Guess that dates me, huh? You might have to google it.
