Welp.  I don't have pics yet, but I do have a time!  I ran the first annual Gusher 5K with friends who had never run before.  I ranked 10th for my age division coming in at 29:48. Not too bad for an old fart!  What a blessing to have been given my health back and doing something that would never have been a possibility just a few years ago.  Whoooopeee!!!  We are running again in two weeks, I'll let you know how I do.  Thank You, LORD for this little piece of plastic around my tummy!

That is fantastic, Cyndy!

5K in less than 30 minutes... no wonder you came in 10 in your age division!

good luck on the next one.

Wow Cyndy!  Cool
Was that your first race - I've never done one - maybe  I would if I had you as a running buddy.  Grin

Well done!

Thanks y'all!  OK, so the over achiever have to do more than my best has sprung forth.  I ran last weekend to run with friends who had never run before to support and encourage them.  Next weekend, IT IS ON!  I am going for it.  I might not win, but I am chanllenging myself to do at least 1 or 2 minutes better time wise.  We'll see if this "old lady" can kick some royal fanny or not! Did I say IT IS ON?Huh  Tongue

I'm so proud of you, Cyndy! I know you've been training for this for awhile now. Isn't it a great feeling of accomplishment? Even as sore as I was, I'm glad I did the 1/2 marathon. Keep it up!

That's great! I'm impressed by the mere fact that you ran it! Then you add the time and it's even better!


Congrats!!!
