It's been three weeks since the GHS Swamp Rabbit 5K and I would like to share my results and pictures with you. There were between 4.000 to 6.000 participants--I have never seen so many people ready to run or walk in one place! I enjoyed my walk and as I have said before-walking is my think time and trust me I had a lot of time to think on this walk. My daughter walked in the race and I told her to go on and don't worry about me. She did great and I am very proud of her.
|The time has finally come|
During this walk, I thought of my mom who suffered a stroke one month ago. Every step I took, I did in her honor and I know one day she will walk again.
Thought this was funny--I saw the one mile mark, but never saw the mark for mile 2 or 3. I asked one of the helpers how much longer until I get to mile 2 and 3. He laughed and told me I was near the end of the race! Yes, I did make it to the end and when I saw my husband and daughter waiting on me I cried.

It has been one year since my weigh loss surgery and I have come to understand that if you put your mind to something you can achieve it. I never though, I would walk over three miles, but I did it. No I did not win, but I finished the race under the time I set for myself.
