I have a running friend who commented on how surprising it was to him that he got so emotional over crossing the finish line. "Of course I was a hot sweaty mess all over, but my eyes, they were sweating rivers down my cheeks," he said. You meam you were crying? someone asked. He said, "Of course not. My eyeballs just really sweat at the end of a long race!" Haha.

I love the run/walk method. You can push without hurting yourself. You'll gain speed over time! Good luck!

There I was yesterday morning with my interval timer clipped to my shirt and my chip timer around my ankle, on the start line, crying.

I cry in races. I just do. Not sure why but running, especially racing, is very emotional for me.

It took me 45 minutes to do the 5k. My last race was a half marathon in 2014 and I was slightly faster then but injuries, life, and general lack of focus sidelined me for 3 years so there it is.

I got done, collected my medal, cried a bit more, hugged people, ate and drank things, and went "Ok now when's the next one and how can I get faster?"

I've been a firm believer in Galloway run/walk training for years so this team was a natural next step.

I love running, music, my job, my life, and dreaming big.
