ready set GO!!!!

ok thats me run/walking my first 5k race.  the moose chase trail run on top of Mount Spokane a couple of weeks ago.  A small group raced through the hills and trails of the mountain.  It was a gorgeous day out I ended up actually being way to warm but had a blast. 

it was a bit of a practice at running in a race of any kind.  As you have seen by my side bar i have been fundraising and training to do my first 1/2 marathon and raise funds for leukemia.  as you read this me and my team (team in training team) are on our way to a weekend of fun, tears, laughter, stories and pounding the pavement in San Francisco at the Nike women's marathon.  I will be mostly walking but a really fast walk.  amazing I could hardly walk for very long when I first started training 5 months ago and now I am doing 13.1 miles. 

its not about the finishing time its about accomplishing something you have never done before. 

This weekend I race for Stephanie (recovering from her 2nd round of leukemia), Mitchell a young man just diagnosed and franca who passed last year.

now back to our regularly scheduled posts
