Heart and Sole 2011

This morning was my first 5k since I hurt my knee back in January.  I completed it in 31:51---not my fastest but I still finished first in my age group.  I was pooped when it was over---and very red faced.  Here is a picture that my hubby took near the finish line.

Here is my award---I am proud of it.  I was afraid that I wasn't going to be able to run again when I hurt my knee but it is getting better...thankfully.  This late in life runner actually enjoys it---I never thought I would ever say that.  It is good for my heart and my stress.  The race today benefitted Special Olympics.

I am about ready to start loading the car---hubby went to fill it up with gas first.

Wisconsin---here I come!
