5K

5K
cool morning
dead grasshoppers
road kill
cow pies
don't look up
Eddie Rabbit in my ear
husband by my side
turkey poop in the air
short strides
consistent
even pace
steady
think I might puke
push through the blahs
inhale diesel fumes
wave at my father-in-law
keep going
ran the whole way from the T
goal accomplished
40:04
puked in the weeds
satisfaction
self-esteem
fulfilment
pride
cried good tears in the shower
PURE JOY

I am SO proud of you! That first race is the hardest, the next one will be a little easier.

Way to go! Hard to do, but feels so good when you are done. Just like labor in a few months you will want to do it all over again.
