So all of that walking/running I have been doing lately is really great exercise. And even though it's only been a month since I began there is a noticeable difference...in breathing, jogging endurance, and quicker time. However, to see how much we've progressed we (we meaning Kim,Heather, and Me)decided to enter a 5K. Yes, a 5K. Seriously! It's only 3.1 miles and we wanted to see how good a time we could make. We certainly weren't in it to win, but instead to mark our progress and set higher goals for the next 5K. Oh, by the way, Kim won 2nd place in our age group!! She rocks!!! Just in case you didn't know, Hurricane Hanna was passing through this morning while we walk/ran our very first race. The initial wetness was cold but after a thorough soaking it wasn't an issue at all. In fact, we were grateful that it wasn't blazing hot. Of course now the rain has gone and the sun is shining brightly. Here we are after the race, highly encouraged, still smiling, and soaking wet!
