Runner?


Last Saturday I ran my first ever 10K (6 miles) race.  It was a great experience and I'm glad my friend JoEllen talked me into it.  I'm not what you would call a runner, in fact I have a hard time getting myself motivated in the running department.  It has been therapeutic though, I can see why people like it.  While running the race I even had some great insightful moments (almost spiritual).  My fantastic friend Melinda came out to support me and watch my boys while I ran, it was nice to have a cheerleader.  I finished 314th out of 615 people, I ran 10 min. miles and finished the race in 1 hr and 3 minutes. 
I'm not sure if I'm done racing, guess it depends on my knees.  1/2 marathon?
Really I'm just glad it wasn't a repeat of my 5k from high school.
