Saturday I participated in Lauryn’s Run, a 5K race planned to assist the family of a local girl battling sickle cell anemia.
The run started at 9AM, by which time the temperature had already climbed into the mid-80’s. My sister-in-law and I decided not to be martyrs. We started out running but after about half a mile we switched to walking until we reached the finish line.
We rewarded ourselves with breakfast/lunch at Waffle House.
|Eric and I waiting for our food to arrive.|
I am not ashamed to admit I ordered a bacon cheeseburger and hash browns.
|I ate every last bite.|
Now we are looking forward to running in the Peachtree Road Race in downtown Atlanta on Wednesday, July fourth. Thankfully, the temperature is supposed to be about ten degrees cooler on Wednesday than it was on Saturday, and I am hoping to run more and average a fifteen-minute mile in this 10K event. But the truth is I will consider myself a winner as long as I complete the race. Which I intend to do even if I have to crawl across the finish line.
What are your plans for the fourth of July? Should I look for you at the Peachtree Road Race?
