Saturday morning I woke up around 7:00 am and took care of the dogs. Then I headed down the road to the start of the Paws for the Cause 5K. I liked this one because it was close to me and it didn't start until 9:00 am. I got there, got signed in, got my bib and my goody bag. I was going to change into the shirt but they only had a port-a-potty and I just didn't feel like that was something I wanted to deal with so I put the goody bag in the car. We stood around for a bit waiting for it to start. It wasn't too big a crowd. Then they told us to get to the start line. I got to the back since I walk and the runners took off. 98% of the group ran only 3 or 4 of walked. I ended up at the back but I was cool with it, I had a beautiful day, my iPhone, and I could go at my own pace. The path was a bit hilly and it had a LOT of potholes since it was a dirt road which was a bit of a challenge. I was doing good until a little after the turn around point where a couple in front of me decided that I shouldn't finish alone so they waited for me and talked to me. It was fine except I was kinda in a zone. But I will admit it got a bit strange when the husband suggested the wife and I hold hands and cross the finish line. I politely declined. It was my first race of the season and I enjoyed it.
The views and ideas expressed here are mine and mine alone they do not reflect my husband's views, the Navy's views, or my employer's views. Seeing as how they are mine I would appreciate it if you didn't take them as your own. If you like something share it with others by all means but please give me credit. I will do the same for you.
I'm a bit unusual but since all of are doesn't that make us usual? I am an Air Force brat born at the Air Force Academy. I was fortunate that I moved to some cool places but not too many...I now call sultry Southeast Virginia my home. I am with a great Navy guy but I understand the joys (and pains) of being single. I love children...but I love visiting with them and don't plan on having them. But I am a Mommy to four kitties and two beautiful Pit bulls. (although one is a baby boy so he is handsome not beautiful) I love my family with all its quirks. Like many people I have an issue with weight and food so I'm working on it.
