Your Body Is A Gift

It was like I had a major light bulb moment. I mean for the last 6 years, weight loss has always been a goal along with getting more physically fit and stronger. And I've heard people say that you only have one body, and you need to take care of it blah blah blah...

But it's like I felt this on a personal level - like WAKE UP GIRL! You have ONE BODY. It's YOUR responsibility to take care of the GIFT that you have been given. I experienced this while I was in bed with pain in both of my feet. My right foot was throbbing from the arthritis, and my left foot was in as much pain from my plantar fasciitis.

Shelter Shuffle

Wow, what a day. This course was by far the toughest course I have ever run. The first obstacle was the 90% humidity. The course was designed where at least half of it was up hill.

When I took my first step onto my first bridge, I realized what they meant. Also, wet leaves covered the route and were also slippery. The last part of the mile was up a wet grassy hill, around a water tower, then back down the wet grassy hill to the finish line.

I ran this race slower than any other race. My pace was a little over a 10 minute mile. But, with this course, I was fairly pleased with myself. I came in third of the overall females and first in my age group.
