Delayed Post

Sorry for the delay y'all. In my best southernese.

I was on vacation and then life immediately ramped right back up. While on vacation, I ran a 5k with a friend and despite spending 8 hours in the car the day before was only 5 seconds off my previous best with a time of 42:44. Wow. The little bit of running I have been doin has been helping. Now I am doing more run training I might drop that time even more.

I did one more run while I was in Mason, Ohio following a night at a baseball game and while it was only 1.6 miles, it felt good to be out. The next day hubby and I went for a 3.25 mile walk.

We left to come home on June 3 and I had another 5k planned on June 4, my anniversary. The plan for that one after another day in the car was to stay with my sister who was doing her first 5k and had been fighting bronchitis for close to two weeks. She had two goals going in and they were to finish in under 60 minutes and also to beat me. I would do anything I could to give her the first one, but with as competitive as we both are, she was going to have to work for the second. In the end, I had stayed with her for just shy of the three mile mark and there was one last hill and for me, the best way to get it was to jog up it, so I did. Unfortunately, when I jogged up the hill, she couldn't and that was where the separation happened and I ended up beating her to the line by 27 seconds. Time wasn't the goal so I will not post her time or mine, what was important was that we finished the full distance.

I have taken the week off since the 5k to recover from the busy week, vacation and travel and starting saturday I will be back in the saddle.

I tried several times to post while in Ohio, but for some reason, my iPhone wouldn't allow me to post, which I have blogged from several times. Have fun y'all and never forget that you never know until you tri!!
