I forgot to mention that I ran my first 5K in over three years last Saturday. I had been “training”, and by training I mean running approximately once every 5-10 days, and was finally finding some fun in running again. It helped that L., unlike both of her sisters, loves to go for runs in the jogging stroller. In fact, if I time it right, she’ll often fall asleep along the way.
Anyway, I’m proud to to report that I finished fourth in my age group, and 26th overall!
Of course I must also admit that only 100 or so people ran the race, and I was over eight minutes slower than the guy who won our age group.
Oh well. Baby steps.
I bought some new shoes today, so if the temperature ever drops below 85 again, I might try to run twice every 5-10 days.
