This weekend I participated in my very first 5K. The Lozilu 5K Women’s Mud Run is a charity mud run to raise money for children’s Leukemia and lymphoma. I lost a friend to leukemia when I was in High School, so this is a cause I’m happy to support.
My sister has done a mud run before and convinced me it would be loads of fun! Wait, you want me to run a 5K with obstacles, in the mud? I am not a runner but I’m so glad I did it.
In April of 2012, I had heart catheter ablation done to try to fix the premature ventricular contractions I was having. Unfortunately, they couldn’t pinpoint the exact location of the problem. So I’m taking matters into my own hands.
I’ve started walking while I work and eating better. My heart doesn’t bother me like it did a year and a half ago. It’s not a life threatening problem but I was highly annoying.
I’m no where near the shape I want to be in. I got winded the first 1/4 mile into this run, but it got better. I’m glad I had the support of my sister, my cousin and her daughter.
It was a blast and I’ll do it again! Here’s to hoping I can run the entire 5K next time.
