First 5K in Years

Saturday, September 21, 2013

Ran my first 5K in 12 years today. I gave it up when my ankles started aching most of the time. I decided to try it without the 34 pounds I've lost thanks to SP. Finished in 27:19 - second in my age group!! emoticon Hopefully, I won't get up with aching ankles.

Signed up for my next race to be run on October 12th. emoticon emoticon
