Betty's First 5K


Thanks everyone for your encouraging words on my post yesterday!

My first 5K was SO much fun!  

I am ready to do another one!


It was a gorgeous day.


The energy was great!


Here I am with  fellow runners and walkers from my college.



I am so glad I took a chance and did something new!

What's next?

Have not exercised since I hurt my ankle, but planning on some running on Monday. I hope I make 3 miles, but probably will not. YOu encourage us all.

You have no limits, woman... no limits!

Alison said...

I'm kind of surprised you didn't keep on past the finish line, burst through the fence around the track and just keep on going.

Is it possible I have a slightly over-inflated view of your abilities?

Way to go Betty.

That is so cool Betty! I didn't know you were going to do this. That's what I get for always playing catchup with reading blogs.
I need to get out there also.
