That is to say -- 5k. And I'm running it. Well, I'm jogging really fast. Ok, yes, I am, in fact, going to run the whole 3.2 miles. With a smile on my face and Pumas on my feet. I have worked so hard. Among all the other hobbies I have, running has become a rather large blip on my radar. Actually, it's more like a category 3. Being a stay-at-home-mom (SAHM) does take a lot out of me so that's why I have to put something back into my self. Even if I am running at 10:30 at night, because that's the only time I have...I'm going to do it. (and I have done it!) Finding the strength to train and run is very fulfilling. And my next race is going to be even more challenging.
We live in a very small town in Central Pennsylvania. And after this race, I truly believe I can sing the words, "take me home country roads" and it actually be applicable.
