i am not a runner.
Never have been, doubt I ever will be.
BUT, I have discovered how much I like to walk! I achieved a HUGE goal for myself last weekend. I walked (jogged a little) my first 1/2 marathon. It felt great! I didn't do it for anyone else but myself! I want to prove to myself that I could push myself.
A few months ago, I joined a local walking group, the Sole Sisters! I did a great consistent job of meeting the group but then May hit with baseball and life! So i hardly walked. But, I did not want to give up! I still wanted to achieve this and so I did it!
It helped to have my great friend, Carmen by my side! We helped each other get through it! I am very proud of us. I know this will not be our last 1/2 marathon.
It was the Helvetia 1/2 Marathon so it was a beautiful walk with a big burger at the end.
