I ran all the way : )

Friday, April 26, 2013

How could I not? Adrenalin! Excitement! Volunteers! Music! Good weather! Encouraging bystanders! Great running partners! The Sun Run was definitely a great experience for me, one I'll want to repeat. Plans already in place for next year--the 30th consecutive Sun Run!--and Sis and I have our eyes peeled for a HM event this summer.

Thanks so much, SparkFriends for all your encouragement and for sharing your own excitement at participating in Events. I think that was what prodded me to give this a try as much any anything else : )

After the run, Sis-in-Law, DW, Bro-in-Law and Niece had a celebratory parade around the living room and presented me with a personalized troply : ) I posted a pic on my SparkPage. What fun!

Now? harrumph. i seem to have contracted bronchitis somewhere on my travels. Coughing and hacking and eager for bed mid-evening : (

Better times next week, no doubt.

    Congratulations on your run! I could picture your family parade and trophy award ceremony - they must be wonderful folks. :)

Sorry, though to hear about the bronchial "thing" - am recovering from what sounds like the same thing, and truly empathize. But you'll bounce back quickly, I'm sure!

Wonderful blog - love the positive energy, as always - thanks for sharing the fun!

:) Gail

BooHoo for the bronchitis. Don't run so fast next time, maybe you won't catch it.
