Day 224 – We Did It

2013.10.05 - SaturdayToday was amazing!  Anita and I started training for today’s 5K almost ten weeks ago.  We uploaded the Couch to 5K app for our phones and started plodding along.  Today, we realized the dream.

It really is amazing to think that a couple months ago we couldn’t even run 1/2 a mile without having to stop to catch our breath.  But today we finished the race in one of our best times in weeks.  Anita reports that she had to walk and run to finish but she still finished ahead of me (passing me before the first mile marker and never looking back).  I shuffled along, only being passed by a few walkers.

But we didn’t do this for speed.  We did it for the health that we hoped to gain.  It was fantastic to prep with her and finish together.  What a great day and a wonderful running partner!
