It's time to stop messing around and get serious about losing the weight. The time is now
and I am the person who has to do the work.

Run the Hood 2012 / Race to Remember


Today was the big day.  It was the Sisterhood 5k Race to Remember.  I'll remember it as the day I way overslept and had to do the race on the treadmill in the basement.  It was over 90 when I was ready to race.  I'm old and fat and no way folks.   Treadmill in the basement it was.

Believe it or not, I wogged it!  I really had no intention of wogging.  I just planned to walk it and be done.  The problem with that was I was in my 1930's basement.   It's old and gross.  Nothing like the finished basements are now.  When I go down there to do the laundry, all I want to do is get out of there.  I guess that is how it kind of happened today. 

Whatever the reasons, here's how my race went.  I started walking on 2 and climbed from there I think I did the longest portion of the race at about a 3.7 or so.  I did climb as high as 6.2 which for me was flying.  I would say I jogged about eight or nine minutes maybe.  That's pretty good for me considering I really hate running.

I finished in 48:20.  I was a little disappointed because that's about 25 seconds or so slower than when I won the third place medal for my Dyngus Day 5k.  It's okay though.  I did it.  I finished and I jogged some when I had no intention of jogging any.  It's all good!
