oh yes, i did!!!
i actually did this same 1/2 marathon last year and couldn't wait
to do it again!
it is 13.1 miles of lovely scenery; older homes and a stint along the waterfront!
a beautiful course and i did it!
this year, my daughter and my niece walked along side me
and my daughter and i actually went through the finish line together.
i loved sharing this whole experience with her too!
i also, bettered my time from last year too.
which always is a good thing!
i feel great-
setting a goal
and tackling it head on!
all the training paid off.
i finished and still had energy to walk
the 3 blocks back to my car! ha.
now, what's next?
i think i've been bit by the 1/2 marathon bug! ;)
i do know, i am competing in another 5k
in ten days! :) :)
nothing feels as good as completing a task
that once seemed so big and scary!
as a two time survivor to breast cancer
i felt like i didn't have any control of that part of my life.
but, this...this i have control of.
i choose to get up and exercise.
i choose to stay fit and healthy.
i choose to find joy in it all!
yep, bring it on!
packet pickup day.
shirt. number bib and socks!

and my daughter and i
