I will remind you that I have never run any sort of race in my life. I am not a runner. Heck, I am not an exerciser for the most part. My husband has always been the one to run 10K races and he goes to the gym religiously. I have always stayed active, but exercising has never come naturally to me. I did continue my 5K race training this week by doing 16 laps around the 1/8 mile track so that is a whole 2 miles. I did one mile of running and one mile of walking. This is my highest lap total to date……yeah for me! When I was done I didn’t feel totally exhausted like I have in the past so maybe my body is getting used to this thing they call exercise. I was feeling so much more confident about myself that I have officially registered for the Acworth Turkey Chase Race scheduled for November 19th (gulp!). The race will be held rain or shine so I am committed to seeing it through….there’s no turning back even if I have to crawl across the finish line.
There’s probably no chance in hades that I will ever be entering any marathons any time soon, but maybe if I have a good 5K experience I will want to continue to do them or even try a 10K down the road. Who knows? At least I will be able to cross a 5K off my bucket list of accomplishments.
What is on your small bucket list to accomplish?
