Confession: this morning was my last race.
Next Confession: I’m not sad about it like I thought I would be.
I am so glad I opted to have Stacy Chestnutt’s Sole Sister’s be my last one. There is such a woman’s empowerment feeling there. It was a timed event (by choice, Stacy allowed you to opt out of the timing) and it was your choice of 5k a quarter or half marathon.
I chose the 5k to not put too much pressure on myself. I had a few friends there with me
My official chip time for my last 5k race was 59:42 so that made me proud too!!
For me, I am deciding to focus on activities that don’t cause me the after effects that walking give me now. Today, now, my left nerve in my back is on fire and the plantar fasciitis in my left foot is flaring.
These are not things that happen during Body Combat and Zumba. Here in lies the issue. Doing these races inevitably make it hard for a week or so in class and that is frustrating.
So thank you Stacy for making my last 5k a memorable and awesome one.
Here’s to the next part of my journey.
