New Personal Best For Me!

Today's 5K race was amazing!! I finished the race in 35:30, giving me an 11:26 min pace. I ran/walked the entire thing, feeling good right up til the very end. Because I pushed myself to give it my all, I wanted to throw up after the finish line!! (but I didn't...thank goodness!) I still feel great nine hours later -- nothing hurts!
I raised over $200 to help find a cure for breast cancer, too! Thanks for your encouragement for today.

Hooray for you!
(What, you're not going to put up your post-race picture? Just kidding...I don't want to see that.)

Excellent, excellent!!

Great job!

I'd love to do coffee this week! Since it's late, let's make it Wednesday. Tomorrow I need to recover from having company all weekend. :)

What time? Scott goes in late on Wednesdays so I could even meet you somewhere if you like!

Yay! for competing against yourself...I am always encouraged to read what you have chosen to face! I love it when we take time to celebrate that which we made time to do in our lives...You go girl!
hugs!

Congratulations on a good race. I admire that you are a runner. I have never enjoyed running....don't know why, except I have a small lung capacity and never had the stamina to run long distances even when I was young. I always ran the short sprints in HS and college.
