I am pretty excited… I’ll be joining a group of lovely ladies to participle with in this year’s Ukrop’s 10k on Saturday, April 1st!
It is something I’ve tried to do annually with my girl Janie since 2011.
In 2011, I was 40 and finished the race in 1 hour, 15 minutes and 53 seconds.
In 2012, I was 41 and finished the race in 1 hour, 14 minutes and 46 seconds.
In 2015, yeah I took a couple of years off, I was 43 finished the race in 1 hour, 22 minutes and 55 seconds.
And now in 2017, because last year I broke my foot and I could not participate, I will be 4 days into my 46th year of life and my only goal is…..to complete the race! hahaha
My times might not sound like all of that, but to me they rock.
You see, each time I just up and did 6.2 miles with no training in the middle of tax season and I have remained pretty consistent through the years.
I even get up at the crack of dawn, drive 2+ hours, do the race, have lunch and drive the 2+ hours back.
Now that alone has got to be impressive! hahaha
I am not sure what this year holds due to the extra weight I am carrying courtesy of the previously mentioned broken foot last year, but if I can remain consistent, I will be over the moon!
And even if I cannot, but I at least finish the race, well, I will still be as pleased as punch and proud of myself.
I hope you sign up to do something you think you might not be able to pull off this year too, it does wonders for the soul.
