Saturday, we ran the South Hall Rotary Club 80’s 5K in Flowery Branch. I knew before I started the run Saturday that I was about to come down with a cold. Thankfully, it waited until I was done running before hitting me with an ever dreaded sore throat. The race did not start until later in the morning and with the sun straight up at that point, I was going to be happy just to finish. I barely made it to mile 1 before having to walk for a few. By mile 2, I was done and did not want to run anymore. I had to force myself to run in to the finish. I finished in 37:40 and placed 4th in a ten year age group.
As I sit here writing my very short blog post for the weekend, I can barely breathe and everything I eat has a weird taste. So I hope this is gone before this coming Saturday’s race. I will be running the Running For Rankin 5K and I hope to see all my friends I have not seen in months!
This week I only have one night of Yoga teacher training class. Thank goodness for that. I am counting down the days until I am done. It takes a lot of time and energy which is limited right now with everything else I have going on. My Fall classes start today and I am also planning a 5K for my alumni association. I am waiting on approval of designs before releasing the information out to social media. Classic Race Services will be timing it and it will be January 20th so go ahead and mark your calendars, for the 1st Annual Frosty Owl 5K benefiting the Athens Tech Alumni Association.
Hugs & Blessings
