I did it! I did it!
I ran the 5k (longer actually) -on a blistering hot day. My sister-in-law, and I did it! I stopped 2 times for 20 seconds, but that was it.
I found little goals to try to reach, and at the very end, I saw some guy who was struggling like me, and said, "man, it's hot." It gave us both that little extra push. And, we finished. I met my husband and daughter at the finishline. It was so rewarding, and a great motivation.
In other news, we went ballroom dancing! Foxtrot and swing-- here we come!
