Active weekend and blisters to prove it!
Sunday, August 25, 2013
So yesterday I did my first race...ever. OK, so it was only a 3K but it was a race. I actually got a medal for third place!! My runner hubby almost cried. Now, that being said, I still walked a few times so I consider myself pretty lucky for getting a medal. The more serious runners were doing the 5K or the 10K, which my husband did and got second in his age group,(see what I am dealing with here!). Anyway, at least now I understand the feeling one has afterwards and I got wonderful shout out messages from my daughters, which was awesome. Yep, the old girl still has a little kick left.
Well, now its Sunday and we had decided a while back that we would like to do a bit of hiking. We wound up going 7 miles and I have about 4 blisters to prove it as I wore my hiking shoes instead of any broken in sneakers, as he did. Good news is that it logged over 700 calories but the bad news is...I'm beat!!!
Oh well, the weather is lovely and dinner is pretty much made at this point. I guess I will worry about these tired toesies tomorrow.
Hope you all had a lovely weekend!!!
ps: I would show you the blisters but some things are better not shown:)
