Our last “official” blog was to be yesterday (votes will no longer be counted as of Saturday Night at midnight), but I wanted to thank everyone, one last time, for every single word of encouragement. They have been priceless!
Chloe and I (along with a few friends from church) ran our first 5K yesterday morning. It was a run/walk, but we finished!
This are my official results:
Overall Place: 159 out of 195 toal entrants
Gender Place: 87 out of 115 women entrants
Age Group Place: 24 our of 31 entrants ages 30-39
Our goal was to finish…and we did that. Our next goal is to run an entire 5K, then improve our speed, then run/walk a 10K, then run the entire thing, then improve our speed, then…you get where I going…Chloe and I would LOVE to run the St. Jude 1/2 Marathon at the end of the year. That would have NEVER been an option for me if not for the Genghis Grill Health Kwest.
I’ve learned a few things over the last 60 days:
1. My family is amazing. The most prayerful, supportive, patient, encouraging people on God’s Earth.
2. People are so supportive, always willing to speak life into others (or even run an impromptu 5K).
3. GG food is not only delicious, but healthy…I enjoyed every single meal I ate there.
4. Lastly, I CAN achieve health and maintain it realistically.
Thanks GG…as we say to the youth at our church….YOU ROCK!!!
