Five Minute Friday – Race
Over at Lisa Jo’s Five Minute Friday we are linking up.
Today’s Race. Five minutes. Just write.
About two and a half years ago I started running. On purpose. I gradually started to actually enjoy running. I decided to run a race.
Race for the Cure April of 2010. To honor my cousin Jamie.
That was my first and only race I ran the.entire.time. All 3.1 miles. Without stopping.
I was passed by a speed walker y’all. No lie. But I didn’t stop racing. Er wogging.
I have ‘competed’ in a few more 5K’s, a 10K, two 12K’s, and 2 half marathons….cause I am only half crazy.
The only race for me was against myself. I wasn’t ever going to be first. It was about the journey for me.
Life is a journey. Not a race to the end.
Enjoy the journey.
