DAY 24: 5K is days away!

Tuesday, October 08, 2019

I'm so excited about the octoberfest 5k I am running this Saturday! There's something about finishing that just gives me a boost of self-confidence & fills me with joy! I am not perfect...not even a little bit close! LOL! I can't stick to my commitment to blog everyday...thus I should probably be on day 28 but I can't keep track. I ate the snickers my husband keeps buying me nightly so he can choose the tv channel! UGH! Tummy ache & sugar headache! But I have been working out more often and Trying to make better food choices. Life is loaded with stress lately and it feels like a 100 pound backpack that I must carry everywhere, but I know everyone has issues. When I run a 5k there is a beginning, a middle and a glorious end! It is 45 minutes of me v me...having to focus all my energy on myself and putting one foot in front of the other. Breathing...sweating...ignorin
g my noodly legs, my throbbing bunion, my shorty shorts riding up! Passing the halfway point and feeling exhilarated by the wind on my face! Impressed that at 196lbs I am running and I am strong and I am brave. Oh yeah, and I do love the medals as well! FUN!
