Between 13 & 14

So #13 and #14 goal was to run a 5K and a 10K.  What about an 8K?  I am going to consider the 5K checked off because even though it wasn't technically a 5K it was more than a 5K so the the 5K is covered. Right?  Right.

This was the first time I have ever done one of these.  Here was my chance to get off my butt and just do it.  I had a blast.  It was a very rainy morning so I was going to bail but I waited until the nth hour to see what the weather was going to do.  It was misty but turned out to be perfectly fine.

8K!!!! - Before
8K- After


This was a good lesson for me about focusing on what you can do instead of what you can't.  What mattered to me was I went out there and I did it.  It wasn't about the time it was about doing it and finishing it.


  1. Great job, and congratulations on accomplishing one of your goals!

    1. Thank you so much. It was soooo fun. I am glad I got past my fear and just did it.
