I get the bad-a$$ badge after all!

Thursday, November 28, 2013

I went to bed last night, absolutely decided that I wasn't going to run in the Turkey Dash this morning. I went to bed late, and I didn5k.'t set an alarm.

I woke up at 7:00 and thought, "Oh, no. Not happening." I went back to sleep.

I woke up again at 8:00 and thought, "Well...."

I texted my buddy and asked her what she was going to do. She was sitting on the couch, trying to decide. So I typed, "Hey, it's an hour of being cold, but then a whole day of feeling smug."

And so I went and did the 5k. I was slow as all get-out, finishing in an appalling 47 minutes. But I did it. At this point I have 10,000+ steps on my Spark Tracker for the day.

I am also absolutely stuffed full of delicious Thanksgiving dinner, and about ready to fall asleep.

    I've done 2 5K's. In 80 degree heat. With heart failure. It took me 60 minutes flat for each one, and I thought that was greaaaat!

I don't ever plan on doing another one though! I landed in bed for 2 days after each one.

emoticon on getting out there - especially in the cold!
