Hey everyone and TGIF! As promised, I wanted to give you a quick update about the Sharon’s Walk/Run/Ride that I did last Saturday for Epilepsy. The weather was beautiful just as I hoped it would be. My son couldn’t participate this year as his Crossfit competition was on Sunday so he needed to rest. The runners started at noon followed by the walkers.
I started off by walking as I normally do and slowly started to run. I reached the halfway point which was about thirty feet away from the rock that I mentioned in my last blog post. I touched the rock, took a sip of water and turned around. I continued on walking and jogging until I saw crowds of people walking towards me.
At this point, I had no choice but to start walking again. While I was disappointed that I had to walk more than I originally intended, I reminded myself that this was not an actual 5k race. After I passed about two or three crowds of people, I picked up the pace and started running again. Now onto the next one in July!
