The 5K Susan G. Koman Race for the Cure this morning was another inspiring event that taught me some very important things:
1. I still do not enjoy running.
2. I don't quit!
3. Don't wear thongs during a race. It is better to go commando.
4. The super expensive athletic earbuds for the iPod don't magically
transform you into a speed demon.
5. Don't be distracted by the little kids and geriatric crowd who
6. Enjoy the experience and atmosphere of people who are truly
inspiring each other just by showing up and putting one foot in
front of the other for a great cause.
7. The port-a-potty is no laughing matter.
8. Keep your head up, your arms pumping, and your mind focused
on the moment.
9. Cherish a man who will tell you how beautiful you are when you
are a sweaty mess. I love you, Thor Romero!
10. Remember those people who have battled breast and other
cancers....still doing their race every day and not quitting, for
they are the true warriors.
I finished the race in record time seeing how I have never been timed before. LOL I only walked a little, ran most of it, and sprinted across the finish line. Then we had the most lovely breakfast on the grass with some wonderful people from Magic City and said hello to lots of folks we knew. I'll be back to my regular workout tomorrow with sore thighs and the knowledge that I am a Champion because I care, and I try, and I won't give up. Thank you to everyone who supports, tolerates, and loves me. I love you too!
