I manage a country homestead and the lives of my 4 babies ages 10,8,5 and 3. I LOVE TO RUN and NEED to keep healthy and fit for my SANITY!! Seriously....All problems are solved when I am running.

Making MY health a priority allows me to be the mother and wife that I need to be for them.

I DID IT!!!!!

Well...It's all over. And it was great.
I ran the entire thing. I went slow in the beginning, barely allowing my lungs to work, and pushed harder in the end.

I ran

10km in 51:15. Yay!!!!

I am very very happy about this score.

I placed 5th in my age group and middle of the pack for the entire race.

I am happy for several reasons.

1) I did not feel the need to walk
2) I did not push myself too hard

3) I ran my BEST 10km YET!!!!!
4) They gave free massages after (see below). Oh...and I won a Frisbee.

5) OH! and my knee felt great!!!
