I Did It!

The breeze blowing through my hair, my heart pounding, my legs moving as fast as they could....it was incredible! That's how I felt this morning when I finished my first 5k race (I ran one once when I was about 10 years old, but because I was so young, and it was so long ago, I'm counting this one as my first). I have been on Cloud 9 all day just thinking about how good it felt. It's been a really long time since I have set a goal, and then seen it through to the finish line. Maybe today will change that. Thanks Christine, Tara, and Sonja for joining the fun. Is anyone up for a 10k at the end of summer? (For a great poem about the race visit my friend Sonja at The Wonder Years.
