Getting ready for something new this weekend…I’m running my first 5K! Steve and I have been going to the gym a couple times a week for the past year and a half (since his surgery.) About 6 months or so ago I decided to try running on the treadmill instead of just walking. It was really hard in the beginning. I slowly built up from just a minute or two to 10 minutes or so and now I can run the mile. I have actually run the full 5K (3.1 miles) before, too. It’s not pretty, but I can do it! This weekend I’m running in a non-timed race – it’s the Color Me Rad run where as you run, they throw packets of colored corn starch at you. I expect to be looking like a rainbow by the time I’m done! I guess it’s something I had wanted to do (at least in the back of my mind) and when I saw that my cousin signed up, I asked her if I could join her team. I’ll post some pictures soon!
Do you have any questions you would like to ask me about adoption – it can be about the process, about openness, about what it’s like now that Zoe is a preschooler?
I would be more than happy to answer them in the next few posts!
