Extra Blog to Motivate Me

Monday, June 09, 2014

Love those pictures of the Sunrise Watermelon Series 2014 #1 race last Saturday. There are 3 more races in the series: June 28, July 26, and August 23. Still haven't found any pictures of me, but I love looking at the pictures of others. I do think it is motivating. I'm now in second place in my age group, determined to stay well so I can pick up a medal in August. And even more determined to use exercise to help me maintain my 80 pound weight loss.

Race day registration:

The finish line, 6 seconds after I passed by:

77 year old Fritz ran it slow (35 minutes), nursing a sore Achilles and vowing run the next race faster:

Enjoying the watermelon:

My WW friend, Diane, victoriously finishing:

Going running with friends this eve on same course. I'll be ready on June 28th!!
