I had meet her before, because our boys go to school together, but we didn't really get to know each other until this 5K came up and we started chatting a bit on Facebook. She even invited Ben and I to do the Man vs. Mud 5 K in August after we run the half marathon.
I just LOVE meeting people with similar interests! It's the best!
Even though we only had two of us on our team, I went ahead and made us some t-shirts:
I knew it was only a 5K, but I had concerns about the paint and my asthma. And for a week I seriously had anxiety about doing it. I didn't want my new friend to think I was a wuss. But I sucked up my anxiety and went for it anyway.
|She got the headbands and bandannas for our asthma issues (she struggles with it too!)|
But she wasn't. She was great! Such a good sport and we had a blast!
We actually did really well. Most the people there were walkin' folk. I tell you, it did wonders to my self-esteem to pass up so many people. We were actually passing people from the first heat who took off 15-20 minutes BEFORE we did. Feeling pretty pumped after, we congratulated ourselves on our great run by dancing with college kids. We totally owned Y.M.C.A.
I am looking forward to MUCH more fun runs this summer! Do you have a fun one planned?
