Did it. Finished my official walking 5K. So glad my friends encouraged me. Especially Ruth, who slowed way down to walk it with me. I had one goal. The race began at 4 p.m. and I wanted to be done by dark. Met my goal! And I am wearing my very nicely designed long sleeve T-shirt as I type.
Stopped hearing the theme from "Jaws" and now I am hearing the theme from "Rocky". You know, where he runs up all those steps. Gonna fly now!
It feels good to finish with a group, instead of just walking for the "fun" of it. By this time next year, I am visualizing myself wearing a single, instead of double-digit size. Yes, I can see it!
