Mom Monday: Chickamauga Chase

On Saturday, April 21, I ran in the Chickamauga Chase 15K. A 15K is 9.3 miles and it was actually a really fun distance to run. I wasn’t able to “train” as well as I wanted due to a little sickness and only got up to 6 miles before race day. But, I guess I’m proof that if you can run 6 miles you can run 9. I kept a steady pace, walked a couple of times and finished in under 2 hours and not last which was my goal! My chip time was 1:46:16.

    So proud of you girls and your run!
    If I was still young I’d make a list, but at my age
    I’m happy waking up: standing up: moving and getting about!
    My goal? Continue this for a good while to come watching all our children growing up!!!! :~)
