I DID IT!!!

Last Saturday, despite getting over a cold and generally feeling like a brick when I run these days, I finally accomplished my goal of running a sub-30-minute 5K!!!!!! It was a very pleasant surprise, and a nice confirmation that I am still reasonably fit – despite the fact that I feel like I’ve regressed in my running this year. In fact, I even went back to my very beginning training plan (“Couch to 5K”) in hopes that I would feel like I was making progress. Up until Saturday, I wasn’t convinced that it helped. But at least I’m making some improvement! And I was 3rd in my age category!!

AnnaGrace was 1st in her age category – yay us!!! The only unfortunate part is they didn’t announce 2nd and 3rd for my age category (or if they did, I couldn’t hear), so I didn’t get my medal. 😦 Oh well – I guess I’ll just have to “constructively” put up a medal on my wall. πŸ™‚

Thanksgiving was WONDERFUL. I managed to check almost everything off my list!!

  • Believe! 5K
    • Done and beasted!!
  • Stuffed crust pizza
    • Almost – Dad made pizza, but cheese didn’t make it into the crust. It was fabulous nonetheless!

    • I didn’t even have to beg πŸ™‚
