I just realized that I never updated on two events I had been working toward. Both goals WERE achieved. And yes, they have been replaced by new goals.
The first event was a 5k for Native American youth suicide awareness. It was my first 5k. I completed it (without my walker) in just over an hour! I never thought that I would be able to do that. It also gave me the race bug. I am goingto do a second race in October. That one is for a service dog agency;ths the one that trained my dog, Sexy Socks. And no, I didn't name him. They did.
The second event was the Ms Abilities America. That is a pageant for people who happen to have disabilities. I came in third place, holding title of Ms Abilities Idaho, as well as Pillar of Service, due to being a veteran. I was also named Ms Abilities Heritage-Ms Abilities Nez Perce. I am the first ever heritage title holder!
I am going to use both events as a launch pad. Just not sure quite yet what for.
