9 days ago I finished my very first competitive 5K walk! Not only that, I was the only one of four in my class (70-74 females) to finish!
I have had both hips replaced and one knee, have OA practically everywhere as well as fibromyalgia, sleep apnea and of course ptsd, among other things! but I love my life and haven't been depressed for more than a year! Of course I had to work up to it very gradually, and am still nursing a sore foot, but WTH, I did it!
Thanks, just wanted to pass along how much change is possible if you make the choices, get the help (lots and lots of it!!!), and do the work.
Photo shows me near the finish near Wolfe Park, Columbus Ohio. The tee was given to all registered participants. Walk benefitted Amethyst Women's Recovery Services.
