I have been running 1.5 miles to 2 miles every other day. On Thursday I ran 2.1 miles before starting my day. I had an interview at 1pm that I will hopefully hear about next week. I visited with a friend. I ran errands. At 6, I met the girls at El Patron in Bartlett for dinner before we went to see NKOTB! It was so exciting we all felt like we were 12 year old little girls drooling over those 5 boys that are now almost 40. The boys have turned into nice looking men. ; ) We screamed. We sang. We laughed. We had a lot of fun.
My favorite New Kid was Donny, of course. You all should know I like the bad boys. : )
Here is everyone:
After the concert, I was beat. I went home and straight to bed. Woke up at 3 in the morning with the most horrible sinus headache. It hurt to lift my head. When I finally got out of bed my head was a little better, but I just felt bad in general. I went ahead and registered for the 5k in hopes that I would feel better after getting some meds in me.
Steve had decided to run to keep me going and convince me to finish. Marshell called and said that he wanted to run, too. Steve ran in front of me like the guy on wii fit. You know the one that trips you if you go too fast. I’m sure he wouldn’t have tripped me, but he would have stopped me. Marshell ran beside me and reminded me to slow down my breathing and pointed out people that I had to beat. Along the run, people were outside cheering us on and many had set their sprinklers to spray into the street for us. The water felt great. I don’t know if I mentioned it, but it was hot! The race started at 7pm. Mile 1 was good. By mile 2, I had run my fastest 2 miles yet. (Take note that I have only ran 2 miles 3 times in my life and they have been in the last 2 weeks.) The last mile was tough. I was tired and my legs were starting to go numb, BUT I had 2 great supporters to help me. When I could see the finish line, I just took off running. I wanted to be done and be able to say I did it. My time was 35 minutes 40 seconds. I’ll take it. There were still people behind me coming in, so I can’t be that bad. I saw lots of people that appeared to be more fit than I am that had to stop and walk in parts. I did this to finish and I finished!
