DSC09139 (1280x1051)

I have been in training since February for my first 10K (that’s 6.2 miles for you that thought like I did it was 10 miles)!  I worked with a YMCA training team in my area and built up to it gradually.  Saturday was the day!

I lined up at the starting line with 40,000 others.  There were elite runners, joggers, wheelchair racers and walkers.  I fit into the latter group. 

This is the crowd in front of me.

This is the crowd behind me.  I was in the next to the last wave and there were 3500 in my wave and 3500 in the one behind me.  Such a sea of people.

This is me approaching the finish line 6.2 miles later.  I accomplished this feat in 1 hour, 50 minutes and 14 seconds.  Not that I am competitive at all, but I beat my training partner’s time by 41 seconds. 

 

 

 

The day was glorious and I helped to raise $250 for the Massey Cancer Center at VCU.  So good for me and good for others, too!

I got out the paper, the paints, the rubber stamps, the inks, and the bubble wrap and made a birdie collage!  It felt good to get my fingers dirty again!
