First 5k since 2009
Saturday, September 28, 2013
Today I participated in my first 5k other than Walk MS since 2009. The funny thing is the last one I did in November 2009 was the Break the Silence 5k for ovarian cancer and today I did the same event - Break the Silence 5k. Today I was not alone, it was myself and little Sophia. She rode in her jogging stroller while I pushed her. This event was not like most of my 5k events - it was completely filled with hills and pushing a 20 pound stroller (filled with stuff) and a 26+ pound 2 year-old is really different when doing hills. I feel pretty good about the entire event as I made it in 44 minutes. I had been down to 39 minutes for a 5k back in 2009 and I cannot complain at 44 minutes now. It has been 4 years and I'm not in the same shape nor am I the same age. Plus add in the additional weight and the hills and I'm thrilled and trilling about it! :) Supporting Maria's Angels was our personal honor today!
