Going the Distance

I did it.  I ran a self imposed 5K this morning on the trail at White Rock Lake.  Okay, okay... "ran" is a bit strong.  But I did jog.  I jogged a 5K in 40 minutes flat while pushing two children in a jogging stroller, which if you haven't done it, is sort of like pushing a 65 pound kitchen appliance on a tricycle.

Anyway, I'm totally pumped.  I jogged a 5K and I didn't die.  I didn't get gassed or pass out or throw up or stop short or get mad or yell at passers by when they looked at me like, "who are you trying to fool", which of course they weren't really thinking.  I just jogged and pushed my kiddos and listened to my iPod and smiled at the other joggers and when I was done I felt like I could have jogged some more!

Yay! Pushing a jog stroller with two is hard work! You'll be ready for a 10k by the time for your official 5k. 40 min is a great time.

That's amazing, pushing a stroller is no joke!! What a great way to start out the New Year! White Rock is where I had my first great run too :)
