Finally Getting Fit


Posted on: January 17, 2012

Hey y’all!!!!    Guess what?

I walked another half-marathon.  Can you believe it?  My regular walk partner couldn’t join me. Her boss wouldn’t let her off work Friday night. So I had found a new half pal.

That’s the medical director from where I work, Ed.  He’s a great guy and he runs.  He really runs. He has a consistent 11 minute mile and he’s faster when he runs 5Ks.

Running has been really really hard for me. I don’t know if it’s the cold or if I’m not pushing myself hard enough but I just haven’t been able to breathe and run.  I just give out so fast.  So we walked the WHOLE race.

He could have left me but he stayed with me so I wouldn’t be by myself.

It was cold that morning. 24 degrees F!  By the time we finished the temp was up in the 40s.  It was such a beautiful day. Look at the blue sky.  And the route volunteers were wonderful.  The crew at mile 4.5 was real party people and mile 9.5 had a dancing chicken.  It was Amazing!

When I got home I had some definite wheezing. My rescue inhaler took care of that. I’ve never actually wheezed before. I spent the rest of the day on the couch.

I had a goal of 3:15 of better and didn’t make it.  I came in just past 3:20. I don’t know if I’ll ever do another one but I’m glad I did that one.  And I’m glad that Ed did it with me.  He will have one helluva PR if ever runs one.
