1/2 marathon: A 3 year old-a pine cone and a Caterpillar




Okay I wtote this post twice and it was deleted. A commmon problem lately---me not happy!

Okay anyway. The race was awesome. It was a bit too cold for my New Orleans blood, but it was fine.

I met a few women when I started out. This was great because I went out there with about 3000 people knowing NO ONE! my weak granny bladder couldn't hold on. I went twice before starting and once at mile 2---yes mile 2.



Let me say that I am no runner. Never have been one. Never wantedto be one. I do love it though. That "high" is indescribable. I did not run for "time" but rather for completion. Most people train with manuals. I used "Non-Runners Guide for Women". Lol

At mile 4...my left ankle felt iffy. Some kid tossed a pine cone from the sideline and I rolled over it with my foot. THEN at mile 4.20 my knee was NOT feeling good! When I saw a caterpillar passing me I knew it was time to stop for a second and regroup. I stopped for 2 mins and readjusted my body. I ran the other 9 miles-walking also--OUCH. I crossed the finish line in tears. Went to the ER LATER that day. Leg immobilizer for 4 days. Apparently my ITBand is a mess and possibly tore the meniscus in my knee- ugh! Good thing the PT is a cutie.

To simply complete this race meant a great deal to me. So much has happened in my life and I have had to miss two other races due to Kennedy's illnesses and hospitalizations. I am so proud of myself.

I am not an endurance runner by nature. But I will complete another 1/2 marathon next year and possibly walk/jog a full in the Fall. I haven't given up on running, but I have decided that I like my knees and walking is okay with me!

Race Morning

Busy Runner




I am running/walking my first half marathon today! I would have blogged more about it or other things but I am so busy.

I have spent a great deal of time in prayer lately... Here is a side glance of the shirt I made.

I am off to do my personal best today. Not a competition for me. Just here to overcome a fear and make it happen. Breaks my hearr that i dont have anyone on the sidelines cheering, but my playlist rocks!
