Also, I hate running or so I thought. I am not fast at all. In fact, I have little stubby legs which equals a little stubby stride. My friends at school come from all different age groups and athletic ability but we all supported each other. We all had our own reasons for training but mine was always because I knew it was going to be hard for me not to win. You see, I am extremely competitive and I LOVE to win. Now that my little ones are getting older and not needing me as much- I knew I needed to find something to challenge me. Something hard.
I have to report that I did not win at all. I did however run the entire 5K. No stopping at all. I actually had my fastest time today. When I crossed that finish line I was amazed. Amazed that I actually did it. Amazed at my team cheering and waiting for me. Amazed at how good it felt to cheer on my teammates that followed after me.
It truly was just amazing but I do have one problem now...I have another dirty secret. I can't wait to do it again and someday I am going to win!
