Love this running thing


The last two weeks have been incredibly busy. I haven’t been able to get online much but have gotten my runs in. I’m still here!

I have found myself battling a cold the last week and it doesn’t quite want to let up yet. No fever so off I go in the mornings on my weekly runs. Last week I completed my 8K. Loved every minute of it. I think I could go slower but did have energy at the end. Today I will tackle the 9K and almost get to that Magic 10K number.

I did a Turkey Trot 5K race here local on Thursday and got my best time yet, 31:17. Still a bit to go before I’m under that elusive 30 minute mark but it will come in time.

I also did the craziest thing and signed up for a marathon - October 27, 2019. Entry fees were more than half off for the first 300 people to sign up so I said ‘Why not’?! It’s almost a year away and if for some reason I can’t make it, I donated to a good cause. I feel good things for 2019!

Happy running friends!!

Thanks Cheeky! It’s you and others on this forum who’ve inspired me. I will never be a speed demon but am enjoying my slow jog. 🐢


Well Done kwell39, you are going to smash the 9k and I wouldn’t be surprised if you posted that you had accidentally run 10k. You are doing brilliantly.

Happy Thanksgiving to you

😂😂 Thanks Thunder. Some days I still have trouble tying my trainers.

Hidden in reply to kwell39

...Yes kwell, I’m sure there probably are some downsides to being Elastigirl too 😄

I do have a bit more spring in my step than most. 🤭
