I am so behind on blogging that the next several posts will be out of order, but at least they will be here, right!
I ran the Swaziland 5k & the Mum Festival 5k in September. The Swaziland 5k started all wrong...my favorite running pants weren't clean, I woke up with an upset tummy(I ate really yummy(bad for you)food late the night before), I got to the race and realized I hadn't grabbed the right wad of cash--I had $2 not $20! I didn't have enough time to go home and get it or even go to the bank. They let me run and send the money in the mail! I pulled my Sony out only to realize the battery was DEAD! (side note: I can't complain, it ran for about 11 miles past when I thought it would die). Well, inspite of ALL that, I ran well and managed to finish only 3 seconds behind my personal best! If only I had my music...or my favorite running pants...or hadn't eaten a bunch of junk...live and LEARN!
28:36! Not just because she helped me accomplish the goal I had set, but I am thankful to have a friend like Ruthie in my life!
