I'm not much of a runner. I try, I just really suck at it. I just keep trying, though.
As a young women's leader, I'm encouraged to complete the Personal Progress program along with my girls. To encourage them to do it, show them how, and learn a few things myself. For the Knowledge value, one of the project options is to create a regular workout/fitness program. I decided to take it a little farther and add a 5k to it.
So I signed up for the Turkey Trot. And in one of our discussions about PP, told the Beehives that that is what I'd be doing.
Only later did I discover the Turkey Trot ain't no 5k. It's a five MILE. Oops. Hans and I both really wanted to back out. But I couldn't face my girls and tell them I hadn't done it!
That meant that Thanksgiving morning found us freezing our butts off on the S. Congress bridge with 21,000 of our closest friends.
I'm glad I did it. And rewarded myself with an extra-large slice of pie at Thanksgiving dinner.
