Back in 2010, Pete and I ran a few 5K races. I was slow and I took a lot of walking breaks, but I really did enjoy it. But then we took a four year break. (I don’t know why, but we did).
This year we’ve been training again, and our first 5K of the season is on Saturday. I’m not quite ready, but I’m doing better than I did in 2010. I can run just over 4K without walking. My plan is to have fun and do the best I can. We’ve also signed up for another 5K in September and my goal is to run the whole 5K for that one. And if I do meet my goal I can apply for my Athletes with Diabetes medal!
Oh, and why did I call this post “Just Keep Swimming”? After watching Finding Nemo a few months ago, I’ve taken to singing this when I feel like I just can’t run anymore, and it works!!
