The long and short of it is that I wanted to
Everybody wants to know about the time . . . Read my title again. You don't have to run fast to gain the benefits. Let's just say that I'm technically a jogger. :)
Oh look - here I am!
I may have a doofus grin, crazy hair, and limpo arms - but look at those feet go. See the other feet? They're walking! I'm mistride as a lean, mean, jogging machine! Oh, you want to see the action shot?
At about 24 seconds in, you'll see my friend go nuts and wave at me. Then the future Mr. Palindrome wakes up and realizes it's not 5 am anymore and I'm almost across the finish line. Just kidding. He had been cheering at 3 other points of race course - can you hear his military trained cheer for me?? Love it. I even muster a smile and a wave. In my head, I was thinking, "Come to Momma, popsicles and beer!"
Shake that wedding stress off and lace up a pair! If for nothing else, for the free food at the end of a race. :) What? *shrug* Homegirl likes to eat!
