5k? Who would have thought ...?

I can't help looking back today. Reflecting, marvelling at how far I have come...

Two years ago I avoided crossing the driveway to check the mail. If I got up the energy to walk the kids to the bus stop I had to stop and rest several times along the way. Climbing the stairs at home left my blood pounding in my ears.

Yesterday I ran\walked my first 5k. My time was 52 minutes and 9 seconds. Not yet ready for the oympics , but I'm so proud I may burst. My dear friend and fellow Sparker Angi (DeterminedAngi) paid my entry and encouraged me to get my brave on. And I DID IT. And so did she. And every twinge of my aching hips and legs today makes me smile.

Thank you Thank you Thank you SparkPeople !!!
