However, on a more positive note from this negative attitude, I decided that I needed to have something to work towards or else I'm less motivated. So I decided to try a 5K, and I did one this morning!
At the starting line. I migrated to the back...no need to draw attention to myself.
Here's the proof I finished alive and well...see, I don't even have the proper running attire. My time was a couple minutes faster than I have been doing. It must have been the adrenaline plus the other runners that helped. Sadly, I did not finish ahead of the old man in his really short running shorts and no shirt. He took 1st place and I think I actually doubled his time. Who knew you can run it with a time in the teens. They said this was his 1200th 5K run, so I let him have the glory of the win this race. Next time, old man! Next time! The turn-around point of the run was right near a Kohls, and I was tempted to stop and shop. Doesn't that sound a lot more fun?
Here is part of my cheering section, minus Scott taking the pictures. ok...so he wasn't really cheering...but I'll take what I can get.
He fell asleep on the carpet watching his favorite movie as of now which is Open Season (the one with the bear and the deer). When he wants to watch it, he says, "Roar!" and I know he means the bear movie. This kids loves his blanket.He's a cute little guy!
