I did it! Ran another 5k "Fun Run". It wasn't really a "race" - but my time was a little bit faster than the first run - so at least I'm consistent. It is an amazing feeling when you are finished....Another t-shirt for my collection. Need to see when the next one is....I'd like to see if I can complete 10 5k runs while I'm here...setting a goal - I'd like to see if I can get my time to be UNDER 30 minutes....that might be a bit ambitious - but you can't achieve a goal if you don't set one! The run was part of the our Native American Heritage month celebration....

i think an under 30 minute 5k in doable for you, mary; just keep going, one race at a time, and you'll get there. Smile

Great news...I knew you could do it...I used to love to run...wasn't much for distance but was good at the sprints...until the dreaded Scowling Demon came into my life....I know you are thrilled to get to have these runs....keep entering.

Congrats, Mary. You have sooooooo much to be proud of. Our son was a marathon runner (frankly I think that's total insanity) so I know what dedication it takes to run distances. Keep up the good work, Mary, and do take care of yourself.
