today is the 16th day 9th month of the 2012th year
I am 41 years old and my sister is 38 years old.
today we ran our first 5k,
Jodies’ bib number was 902
Mine was 2029
(it’s alphabetical.. for those who do not know)
in case you do not know, a 5k is 3.1 miles.
my personal goal was to finish in 45 mintes.
we crossed over the finish line ant the clock said 39 :40
I was thrilled with this number.
On the way home, by brilliant sister and I started talking about how the clock read that, but those were the first runners…. the fast runners.. and that in fact it took us a good 4-5 minutes for us to start our race
*keep in mind, we are newbies here*
so alllllllll day we have waited for the final results to be posted… 5 minutes ago.. they were
34 minutes and 26 seconds! yeah baby!!! we ran a n 11:05 mile!! WWWAAAAY beyond what I could that I could ever do!!
I will post more on this whole experience tomorrow, but I have a hubby who is in actually in town and some legs that need some rest 🙂
Onto the giveaway.. 42 of you qualified.. thank you for every share that you made. The only way for me to help my blog grow is for those who like it to share it with others.
