Well today was supposed to be the first 5k of “my” season with the Susan G. Komen race but I’ve had some small medical issues and my Dr. advised me not to run a full 5k until after my follow up appointment this coming week. So I did do a small run with the Genesis group this morning, it was the first day of the new program for the Saturday group. I did a slow pace and only about 25 minutes, I think that was ok I felt pretty good.
There was a good turn out for today’s group. A lot of first time runners and a few of us graduates of the program. In fact there was one person who was in the group that I was in last year! That was cool. It has been exactly one year today since I started running; I received notification from Map My Run letting me know of my anniversary. Hard to believe I’m still running a year later. I didn’t think I would stick with it honestly but running has become a form of meditation for me. Even today when I had to keep it slow and easy, it was ok. It was a nice cool morning and I was running along side the river with the sun shining off the water. I was a little disappointed I could not do the SGK race but I was still able to do a little something on my anniversary and that’s all that really mattered…I was out there! 🏃🏾
Here’s to Genesis 2.0 and happy anniversary to me!
