10K

I could have been sitting on the couch sipping coffee, enjoying myself, relaxing, reading a book. However, this morning I participated in a 10km race. My friend and I decided that we should do a race together. We could have signed up for 3km or maybe 5km, but no, we went all the way and signed up for 10km. Take note that the last time I ran was when I was late for class a month a go.

We didn't come in last. There was one (literally) person behind us.

But we had fun. Neither of us had any illusions that we would place or even run the whole way. We ran, we walked, we chatted, & got to know one another a little better.

Now I relax. If you are looking for me, I'll be on the couch, sipping coffee, enjoying myself, relaxing, reading a book, and maybe having a nap. Crazy women.

Good for you! I've never had that experience (and would have to be dragged there to do it) but I'm sure the effort was worthwhile! Congrats on completing your 10K, regardless how long it took!

WOW - good for you! I am SO IMPRESSED. I bet it was tough but very fulfilling at the same time.
You can have some very justified relaxation now
Take Care

NICE!!!!
Well done, girls!
I simply love the fact that you went for it and you had a great time together. I don't think I would have been able to stop laughing if I had done that run with my best friend. HAHAHAHAHAHA!

Love Cherry xoxox
