I did something athletic


I've never won a medal, award, or trophy for doing anything athletic. But I got one this weekend at the end of the 5k run/walk at the Blue Nose International Marathon.

I got up early on Sunday morning to run/walk in the drizzle/rain. And I surprised myself with how well I did. I figured I'd be walking the whole thing, with maybe a little sprint at the end. But I ended up running a lot more than I thought I was capable of.

And, aside from some muscle pain, I feel just fine afterward.

Many thanks to Amanda for coming out to support me and cheer me on. I think I even surprised her!

Stats-wise, I finished 397th out of 548 participants, with a time of 38:55.9.

10k next year?
