Several months ago my BFF Kippi Clark called and asked if I would walk a half marathon with her in June. I was all in from the very beginning. We found a 16 week training and I though piece of cake, until she told me that she walks a 14 minute mile. Holy smoke I needed to get going as that is a very fast walking pace. I could do maybe one 14 minute mile but not 13.1 miles.
|We had several miles under 14 minutes.|
|We are strong and we can do this. It was starting to get hot however. Our feet were hot and my toes hurt. I think I am going to loose a coupe of toe nails. Boooo|
|We walked most of the way but I just couldn't help myself and I had to run at the very end. We walked with this couple that we kept ahead of most of the race. They were not going to beat us professionals.|
|We did it! It was way fun!|
|I love my Fitbit, instant motivation and satisfaction.|
|One more stat to add I finsihed 22 in my age group, 60-65. Only 25 crazy old people.:) This is a young peoples thing and maybe I should hang up my running shoes.|
With it being so hot it was easy to get dehydrated. I thought I had enough water but I was feeling pretty puny by the time I got home. If there is a next time I will drink more at the end and eat more than a yogurt before the race.
