Yesterday I had a great time participating in Virginia is for Lovers 6k. I was asked to do this race with a dear friend of mine Ellen. This was her first race back since breaking her foot over the summer last year. This is probably the coldest race each year in Virginia Beach which was one of the reasons I wasn’t sure I was going to do it. But Ellen asked me if I would walk it with her (she is a speed walker) as her comeback race. How could I say no 🙂
The race lived up to its cold reputation, it was 28 degrees….I didn’t even bother looking at the “real feel” because frankly I didn’t want to know 😉 But we bundled up and headed out. Aren’t we pretty:
The race was fun for lots of reasons
- I got to walk it with a friend
- I got to take pictures & eat candy ( they give out M&M’s on the course)
- I got to dance on the course and enjoy myself!
But the best part was when I found out tonight that Ellen got 1st place in her age group!!! Did I mention she is somewhere between 70-74!! Wohoo!! I am so proud of her, she is an inspiration and I hope someday I will be doing the same. If that doesn’t get you all moving than I don’t know what will 🙂
Happy Motivational Monday Everyone!!
